Campus Vista

The first historic neighborhood I am featuring happens to be the one that I live in. This house is about 3 streets away from me and it’s one that I have admired on my many morning walks. I love the landscape of this home and the wonderful shade provided by the surrounding trees.

Each of these districts has a name that identifies it in some way. Campus Vista historic district gets its name from the close proximity to Phoenix College. The homes in this area date from 1939 to 1956.

The small photo shows the blue street signs that are used to designate a historic district. Each of these neighborhoods is identified by one of these signs situated above the normal street sign.

The neighborhood signs are always nice. Mostly, those are only shown on new developments here where I live. After that and the building stops, it is just another part of town.

It is also nice to be able to look at a house and write down or make notes or take photos of those things around a house that appeals to you or makes the house appealing.

Your visit will count and help me Make History.
