Willo Historic District
Willo District architecture is an eclectic mix of “revival” styles. Most of the homes were built between the late 1920’s to the mid 1940’s, with the older real estate in the south and east portions of the neighborhood. The area’s diverse architecture includes Bungalow, Tudor, English Cottage, Spanish Colonial, Mediterranean, Pueblo, International, and Southwest Style homes.
The Willo Historic District boundaries are McDowell Road to the south, Thomas Road to the north, Central Avenue to the east and 7th Avenue to the west.
The Willo district was selected as on of the nation’s “Top 10 Cottage Communities” by Cottage Living Magazine in 2007.
The Willo District is also famous for the annual Willo Historic District Home Tour. Select homes are open to the public (tickets required) during the tour. There is also a fun street fair featuring locally produced art and other attractions. There is no admission charge for the street fair.
