‪Really cool area of Tucson with some of the most beautiful homes you'll find. Located not far from 4th avenue, this is worth a drive thru.‬

‪This residential neighborhood is the oldest representation of the cultural and ethnic diversity that lead Arizona toward Statehood. It began as a military armory designed to protect the White settlers from the local indigenous peoples that inhabited the area. The layout of the neighboorhood is still the one devised during military occupation while still a territory. The syructures were adobe Pueblo style. When the railroad came through, the architecture began to change with the flow of new materials and influence of other states. The upper railroad personnel build Victorian brick homes.
Followed by The Bugalow style home. In order to keep pace with Californians, Craftman style homes and very large Victorian homes were built
During the Depression years, there was a resurgence of the Southwest Pueblo style but modified slightly to become Transitional Pueblo Style homes. The 1940s brought track homes which are found on E.15th Ave.
The neighborhood fell into a state of disrepair in the 1960s-1970s. In 1976 The Armory Historic District was placed on the National Registry. Tax incentives created a resurgence leadint to a revitalization of the neighborhood. 2-4 Homes combined sold in the 1970s for very little. Today, these homes seldom come.up for sale and boast a hefty price tag. Everything in the neighborhood is controlled by National Registry requirements.

There isn't a lot of information to be found about the neighborhood but I found everyone to be very friendly and more than willing to tell you about their home and the surrounding area. I was able to tour inside 10 homes during my self-guided historic walks.

If you enjoy historic walks then add this neighborhood to your travels. Be aware that it's impossible to do in a couple of days due to the vast size of tbe district. Additionally, after April it us too hot to walk after 10am. If you take your dog be very alert to how hot the concrete and blacktop can get by 11am after April. Bring lots of water as there isn't anywhere to obtain a drink on this walk-about. Don't be shy and say hello to anyone outside. Asking them the age of the house is an excellent ice breaker. Introduce yourself. Be cautious when invited to see inside.

Not wheelchair accessible. No facilities nearby. No water or food either. Lots of dogs in the neighborhood. There are 4 Neopolian Mastiffs residing on the corner of 5th Ave and 15th St. If you're not paying attention to the warning sign on the beautifully hand-wrought iron fence you will be when these 4 gentle giants say hello!

Most yards have gorgeous landscaping with a Southwestern flare. Almost all homes are fenced with varying heights of hand-wrought iron fencing. Many fences are more than 100 years old.

A few homes have been designated by National Audubon as "bird sanctuaries." The streets are lined with trees on both sides. At every four corners is a round-about in the center to slow traffic down without adding speed bumps.

This is a free activity the whole family can enjoy. I would recommend Spring or Fall as the most coloring is visible in the greenery. Public transit is available on 6th Ave.‬
