East Alvarado Historic District Highlights
Historians say the East Alvarado Historic District reflects the transition from romantic, Period Revival architecture to more uniform housing styles growing in favor with the Federal Housing Administration. One of the city’s smallest historic districts includes only about 30 homes, but they are some of the most beautiful and unique homes in the Valley. The neighborhood is well-hidden – a gem tucked away just east of Central Avenue and McDowell Road. Large, custom homes on huge lots dominate the neighborhood, including the Heard Museum, a Spanish Revival-style former home built in 1907.
Most of these custom homes were built between 1924 and 1932. A mixture of early 20th century architectural styles reflects the affluence of the period. Architectural styles found in the Alvarado Historic District also include Mission, Colonial Revival, Spanish and Craftsman Bungalow. According to city historians, these homes were built for the city’s well-heeled residents and designed by prominent local architects.
