Roosevelt Historic District Highlights
The history of Roosevelt Historic Neighborhood is rich and deep and its future promising. With the current revitalization efforts taking place in Downtown, Roosevelt Neighborhood is at the center of new residential development. Brought to life by parks, a walkable scale, small businesses, neighborhood cafes and restaurants, and friendly people, the Roosevelt Neighborhood is becoming the “place to be” in the burgeoning urban core of Phoenix.
The Roosevelt Historic Neighborhood is significant as a microcosm of the development patterns that shaped Phoenix in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is also significant for its locally outstanding examples of early twentieth century American architectural styles popular in Phoenix between 1897 and 1938, and for its association with many prominent political figures, community leaders, capitalists, and entrepreneurs who helped shape Phoenix during its infancy. The period of significance spans more than 45 years, from 1893 until 1938.
Architecturally, the Roosevelt Neighborhood has some of the finest streetscapes of early twentieth century residential, religious, and school architecture in the City of Phoenix. Among the relatively plain California Bungalows, which dominate the landscape, are finely detailed Craftsman Bungalows and Period Revival houses (including Mission Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, Italian Villa Revival, French Provincial Revival, and English Cottage Revival). Many of these are the most notable examples of their styles in Phoenix. Furthermore, the neighborhood includes important assemblages of vernacular Neoclassical Revival cottages and Prairie School buildings. Outstanding examples of religious and educational architecture include the Phoenix IDS Second Ward Church (KA-157), designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, Trinity Cathedral (SA-52), designed in the Mission Revival style, and Kenilworth School (KA-116), a locally significant example of Neoclassical Revival design. The majority of the significant architectural examples in the Roosevelt Neighborhood are included within the boundaries of the four historic districts and are discussed within the context of the significance of those districts. Additionally, several outstanding examples of vernacular Victorian era, Mission Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, Craftsman Bungalow, and English Cottage Revival buildings lie outside these boundaries and enhance the significance of the multiple resource area.
