FQ STORY HISTORIC DISTRICT
Homes For Sale In Historic FQ Story
Spanish Colonial Revival, English Tudor, Craftsman Bungalows and some Early Ranch-style homes line the tree-shaded streets of one of Phoenix’s earliest historical neighborhoods. Built between the 1920s and late ’40s, the first homes in this area were clustered at the east end along Seventh Avenue, near the city’s streetcar line. Later homes featured detached garages, reflecting residents’ quick embrace of the automobile.
The district is named after a Boston wool merchant, Frances Quarles Story, who moved to California for his health and became an enthusiastic promoter of not only his new home state but also Arizona. He helped design and build Grand Avenue and purchased 200 acres along its route with the intention of subdividing it. However, he sold the land that would later be developed into a neighborhood that bore his name.
The neighborhood as well as many of its individual houses are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Boundaries: Generally bounded by McDowell Road to Roosevelt Street, and 7th to 17th Avenues.
