Roosevelt Historic District, Arizona
Five historic homes in one of Phoenix’s original neighborhoods continue to serve residents after a historic rehabilitation project with help from a National Park Service Historic Preservation Tax Credit. The $313,000 project adapted five buildings, built from 1922 to 1928, for safe modern use. Four of these structures were designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style with features including terra cotta tile roofs, wrought iron railings, and roof parapets. The fifth building is a stuccoed bungalow with classical and arts and crafts detailing. Now that they have been repaired, they continue to draw residents and visitors to the Roosevelt Historic District. The rehabilitation included lead removal, HVAC upgrades, exterior painting and repair, reinstallation of French doors, and window repair and replacement.
