Although he never actually lived in Arizona he was influential in the construction of Grand Avenue in 1887. The F.Q. Story subdivision was started in 1920 and promoted in local newspapers as "The Real Estate Event of the Season!" and advertising claimed that the developers expected to sell out in thirty days. Reality was a bit more conservative with only one home built in all of 1921. Turns out 1920 was a very wet year in Phoenix and the area was directly in the flood way of Cave Creek.

Story Historic District with architecture including Tudor Revival, Craftsman, Ranch, Bungalow and
