Brentwood Historic District | Phoenix Arizona 85006

Brentwood Historic District consists of several subdivisions platted between 1926 and 1946. It consists of single-family residences with only four exceptions: the Latter-Day Saints (LDS-Mormon) Stake Center at 1725 East Brill Street dating from 1947-1949 and three small apartment buildings. Although Ranch and Period Revival-style houses dominate the streetscape of the district, a few Southwest and Bungalow-style dwellings are also found, as are a number of un-styled homes. The oldest house in the district, at 1821 East Willetta Street, was apparently constructed in 1916. However, this house and several other early 1920 buildings predate the platting of the various subdivisions that make up the Brentwood neighborhood. Governor George W. P. Hunt (Arizona’s first governor) resided at 1679 East McDowell Road until his death in 1934. His mansion was demolished in the 1950s to make way for the commercialization of McDowell. Brentwood was developed during the Phoenix's booming building periods before, during and after World War II. Early on, the developer touted the neighborhood’s “modestly priced homes . . . with city water, gas and electricity,” according to city records. And though a good bargain, the homes still offered such “modern” features as hardwood flooring. During World War II, a housing shortage for workers in war-related industries prompted the development of more economical homes with fewer amenities. As in the rest of the city, the end of the war brought a housing craze and Brentwood grew, with more homes aimed at middle-class families and building through the 1950s. Brentwood appears today much as it did in the early to mid-20th century, retaining a high level of integrity in both its architecture and setting. Some of the neighborhood’s houses have undergone alteration including additions, window replacements, stucco treatments and roofing substitutions. However, the majority of houses are little changed from the time of their construction. When additions have occurred, they are mainly at the rear of the building and have little effect on the streetscape of the historic district. Viewed in its entirety, the neighborhood is a largely intact assemblage of moderately valued houses with a diversity of architectural styles. Despite the commercial encroachment on two sides and the construction of freeways on the other two sides, the district has managed to maintain its historical residential characteristics and feeling.
