The annual Historic Roosevelt Neighborhood Home Tour by the Roosevelt Action Association will feature many historic properties from Phoenix’s first suburb (beyond the Phoenix city limits). The tour will take place 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13.
The Historic Roosevelt Neighborhood is a modern name for a series of neighborhoods that grew north of the city between 1893 and 1930 and it spans from McDowell Road to Van Buren Street, and from Central to 7th avenues. Learn about early Phoenix history by taking a rare glimpse into history and architecture of Historic Roosevelt’s homes. Explore turn-of-the-century architecture such as Bungalows, Neoclassical, Tudor, Period Revival and Southwest Vernacular Homes.
There will be food trucks and a craft fair to help you tick some gift items off your list for the holidays.
Regular tour tickets are $12 in advance (until 10 p.m. Nov. 12), $15 the day of the tour. Students and children ages 8-17 pay $10. Prepaid tickets can be picked up at the home tour booth the day of the tour at 3rd Avenue and Lynwood Street.
Proceeds from the Home Tour support the work of the Roosevelt Action Association’s mission to preserve the neighborhood’s unique historic character. For more information or to purchase advance tickets, go to: http://www.rooseveltneighborhood.org.
