Situated between Central and 7th Avenue, Roosevelt District was home to Phoenix's socially elite in late 19th century and early 20th century. Many of Roosevelt’s streets, including an exclusive stretch along Central Avenue were known as “Millionaire's Row,” and lined with stately homes. Only one of the former mansions remains: the Ellis-Shackelford House at 1242 Central Ave., built in 1912. Today it is in urban downtown with the light rail running through its core and high rise living, you'll also find museums, sports venues, theater and music. The annual Historic Roosevelt Neighborhood Home Tour is held by the Roosevelt Action Association features many historic properties. It's a great way to learn about early Phoenix history and take a rare glimpse into history and architecture of Historic Roosevelt.
