The National Register of Historic Places

The Willo Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. J.P. Holcomb used a Homestead Patent in 1878 to acquire the southern section of Willo Historic District, between Encanto Boulevard and McDowell Road. Then, in 1886 Holcomb acquired the northern section, which is between Encanto Boulevard and Thomas Road, through a Timber Culture Land Patent. 

22 Different Subdivisions

Willo consists of 22 individual subdivisions. Each is different  which can be seen in architecture, landscaping, lot sizes and street styles. So, this is part of what makes Willo so unique. In the early 1900’s, four different subdivisions were platted which accounted for plans for 41 Bungalow Style home sites. Willo is now one of downtown Phoenix’s largest historic districts with over 900 homes.
