Woodlea Historic District of Phoenix

The Woodlea Historic District includes most of the original Woodlea Subdivision as originally platted. Homes in a wide range of styles popular in Phoenix during the 1920s, 30s and 40s can be found interspersed throughout the district although the oldest houses are generally found on Mackenzie Drive and 9th Avenue.

In 1928, Thomas MacKenzie purchased 47 acres of lettuce field north of the Phoenix city limits for $20,000. He subdivided the lot into 190 individual lots and began to sell in 1929, calling the subdivision Woodlea due to the many trees that bordered the property. Woodlea featured paved streets, electricity and "no city taxes." Water was supplied by a well and was advertised as far superior to any water in the city. Visitors to the sales office were encouraged to taste and take a canteen home.
