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. 9.
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 entertainment available throughout the day. There is an optional guided tour with “Hip Historian” Marshall Shore. Limited tickets are available.
Regular tour tickets are $12 in advance, $15 the day of the tour. The Marshall Shore guided tours are $24 in advance and $28 the day of, if spaces remain. 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.
