Garfield and North Garfield
The Garfield neighborhood is an area that is still struggling to make a comeback. It's located just east of downtown Phoenix and is comprised of very small homes some dating back to 1883 but, most from the 20's, 30's and 40's. It was one of the first additions to the original Phoenix town site.
The little house above has been freshly painted and is now ready for some yard work.
The owners of this little bungalow have done quite a bit to enhance the front with plants and planters and even a fountain.
The North Garfield neighborhood is adjacent to the Garfield area and contains similar houses dating back to the early part of the 1900's. The one above has that distinctive Spanish style.
This one is built in the "salt-block" style I've seen in other historic neighborhoods however, this is the only one like this that I saw in the North Garfield area. I recently featured a Phoenix Bird that is located in the Garfield neighborhood. You can see it here.
