Roosevelt Historic District of Phoenix

Roosevelt was the first district in Phoenix to receive Historic Designation. Settled in the late 1800’s, it was comprised of nine distinct developments (or additions). The first addition was settled by Colonel J.T. Simms in 1895. Subsequent additions were settled to the west and north as the city grew. The neighborhood was home to many prominent Phoenicians including Congressman Carl Hayden and Baron M. Goldwater, Founder of Goldwater’s department store (and father of Senator Barry M. Goldwater). As Roosevelt has matured, the distinction between specific “additions” has blurred. Today it is enjoying a rebirth as a neighborhood of diversity and character, close to the heart of the city. Roosevelt has continued to add additions within its borders with multi-family communities, mid-rise condominiums, mixed use and reuse of older home into offices, restaurants, etc.
