30th Anniversary Willo Home Tour
Sunday, February 11, 2018
In 2018, the Willo Historic Neighborhood invites residents and Valley visitors to its 30th Anniversary Willo Home Tour. Join us for an inside look at some of the unique homes that make up the neighborhood. Willo is Phoenix’s largest historic district consisting of over 900 homes and is bordered north to south by Thomas and McDowell, and east to west by 1st Avenue and 7th Avenue. Learn more about the Willo neighborhood’s history.
The Willo Historic Home Tour and Street Fair has something for everyone. In 2018, architecturally significant homes and the historic firehouse will be open to the public for an inside look. The homes range in style from Tudor to Spanish Revival, Bungalow and Ranch and were built from the 1920s through the 1940s. If laid back relaxation is more your style then you can enjoy the classic car show on Holly at Third Ave. and the beer/wine garden.
The Willo Home Tour is the sole fundraiser for the neighborhood and provides the funding for neighborhood movie nights, holiday luminarias, Block Watch, Willo Yard Sale advertising, Kids Club activities and other neighborhood events. The Tour is put on by volunteers who live in the neighborhood. The committee also hosts several appreciation events for the homeowners to thank for their commitment to the neighborhood.
