Developing Marshall Square, 1922-1926
Three Craftsman Bungalows

A Craftsman Bungalow Style home, typical of those constructed and financed by the Marshall's during the 1920s. Homes of this type were found throughout the neighborhoods to the west and north of the University of Arizona.

Two excellent examples of middle class housing built during the 1920s. While very much different in their appearances, both of the dwellings pictured here are Craftsman Bungalows; the open front porch being the key defining architectural feature of the style.

The home above has strong elements reminiscent of the Sonoran style in its flat roof with parapet.

This building offers a more Territorial projection in its hipped roof with front gable end. Note that both buildings are constructed on top of a lava rock stem wall. That lava rock was Tucson's indigenous building material and most likely quarried from either "A" Mountain or other sites to the west of the Tucson Mountains.
