Historic Avondale District

Western street sign_thumb.jpgThe Historic Avondale District, located between Van Buren Street and Lower Buckeye Road and Dysart Road and the Agua Fria River is rich in history and people.  In fact, you don’t need to go very far to find someone in Historic Avondale ready to tell you a story of the old days. Its residents, proud of their heritage and their walks down Western Avenue can be found on a Sunday afternoon conversing with neighbors or relaxing on their porches.

Everyone seems to think of “Western Avenue”, when they think of Historic Avondale.  It is home to Kreative Kupcakes, Glorious Flowers, Zamora Café and Restaurant, Michelle’s Bridal, the Keepsake Trophy Shop, and more.  Western Avenue is a bustling area after school with children running to the library to get a good read or just socializing with friends in Serna’s Plaza. 

What’s not to love?  Moderately priced homes and a neighborhood that is rich in history awaits its new residents and close family members. Close to shopping on Central Avenue, and eateries well within your budget, this coveted old town spot offers friendly neighbors who’ll greet you on the streets, all with a peaceful and well-loved residential neighborhood in between.
