Victoria Place Historic District is located from 7th Street to 9th Street on E. McKinley Street, Phoenix, Arizona
The architectural styles and square footage in Victoria Place Historic District consist mainly of smaller Bungalows and Spanish Colonial Revivals giving broad front porches and tapering porch columns. The homes are smaller but very quaint.
A Very Small Neighborhood with a Rich History
Victoria Place Historic District homes are small in part because Victoria Place was initially a pair of only two-acre lots, each individually owned by FX O’Brien and Eric Hanson.
The lots were positioned back-to-back and surrounded by larger five-acre parcels, which had, been platted before the housing demand at the turn-of-the-century. Consequently, all of the homes were completed after the war and before the effects of the Depression hit Arizona in 1930.
Historic District Designation
The Victoria Place Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in April 1989 and listed by the city in the Phoenix Historic Property Register the same month. Therefore, the designation also qualifies properties for participation in other city-supported preservation programs including tax breaks.
