The Encanto-Palmcroft historic neighborhood is diminutive in size with approximately 330 households but its tradition is rich. Architecture in Encanto-Palmcroft is diverse, including Spanish Colonial, Tudor Revival, Cape Cod and Monterey Revival. The proximity of this quaint Downtown Phoenix neighborhood to Encanto Park represents an approach to suburban planning referred to as “City Beautiful” that evolved in Phoenix as a highly successful achievement. It symbolized a romanticized approach to architecture and the houses tend to “look towards each other,” reinforcing a sense of community.
Boundaries: Encanto Boulevard south to McDowell Road; Seventh Avenue west to 15th Avenue
