Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-25).
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1900 subsequent work
Significance: The significance of this structure lies in its conversion from a standard adobe construction to a substantial brick edifice. The L-shaped plan of the adobe building was unified in a rectangular mass with high hip roof, and as such, represents an updating of traditional Barrio architecture to meet early twentieth-century design standards. The remodeling was designed by Henry O. Jaastad, Tucson architect, between 1906-1908. Contextually, this building dominates the streetscape but is reinforced by its brick neighbor to the south, also designed by Jaastad. Together they reinforce the planar qualities of street facades along South Convent Avenue.
