Fairview Place Historic District is a downtown Phoenix neighborhood of modest homes that are cozy and unpretentious.  There are 14 architectural styles represented here, including Southwest, Tudor, English Stone Cottage and Transitional Ranch.  They average in size from 900 to 1,400 square feet.  The homes are well-built with nice attention to detail.  Currently the homes sell in the $100,000 to $200,000+ range.

When this neighborhood was developed in the 1920's, it was outside the city limits of Phoenix.  A 1928 newspaper advertisement boasted that a home in Fairview Place would offer "a distinct social and business asset."  The suburban trend was underway and homes were built well into the 1940's.

Fairview Place neighbors decided to form an association in 1990 and look into attaining official historic designation.  This was an all-volunteer effort completed by a group of interested neighbors.  They measured, photographed and researched all 342 homes.  Neighbors also planted 360 trees in the parkways.  There is a newsletter and various social get-togethers which allow folks to become better acquainted.  In 1994, Historic Designation was granted and Fairview Place was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
