Ashland Place Historic District
The boundaries of Ashland Place Historic District are: Vernon on the north to Oak on the south, 3rd Street to just east of Central.
Ashland Place’s architecture is dominated by Bungalow and Period Revival styles. It was developed in the 1920s when visionary leader Dwight B. Heard’s “Los Olivos” subdivision was resubdivided to correspond with the time’s demand for smaller lots. Originally offered at $25 per month, these homes were primarily constructed between 1923 and 1927. Ashland Place also boasts the mid-century marvel Regency House. Designed in 1964 by George H. Schoneberger, Jr., AIA, it was the first high-rise residential structure in Phoenix.
