Bounded by Central and 7th Ave, McDowell to FillmoreThis was the first Phoenix neighborhood to be designated an historic district and has some of the oldest homes in Phoenix. Roosevelt showcases a variety of architecturally and historically significant commercial and residential styles and structures. A typical “streetcar” neighborhood, its narrow and deep lots predominantly showcase gorgeous Craftsman Bungalows with large front porches and streets lined with palm trees. In the early 20th century, Roosevelt was a popular place for politically and socially prominent citizens. Today, close to everything downtown has to offer, Roosevelt is a very popular choice for historic home buyers.
