Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-41
Building/structure dates: 184 initial construction
Significance: This early transitional Sonoran adobe exhibits Anglo influences through its shingled pyramidal hipped roof and gabled dormer vent. One of a sequence of such dwellings, this row house is set flush with the street and contiguously with the structures on either side of it. It was probably converted in the early 1900s, as many Barrio dwellings were, from a single-family residence to a duplex. Showing signs of neglect and abandonment, exposed adobe shows through the plaster, and the roof is no longer functional.
