The Willo Historic District is a truly magnificent historic neighborhood. As one of Phoenix’s most beautiful historic neighborhoods, Willo is located just west of Central Avenue between Thomas and McDowell Roads from 1st to 7th Avenues. The fact that there are three light rail stops near Willo add another unique benefit to living in this great location. Having stations at McDowell, Encanto and at Thomas/Central Avenue allow Willo residents to easily take advantage of all of the great restaurants, shops, arts districts, sporting activities, employment centers, etc along the light rail line. This truly is old world charm meets new and modern conveniences.
Willo is an amazing community. From our friend, Christoph Schweiger we hear that homes in Willo: “do not have garages, walk-in closets, or entertainment centers. They were built in the 1920’s and ’30’s before people thought lots of storage space was essential in a home. But for every modern convenience they may seem to lack, the historic homes of Willo more than make up for them in charm and grace.”
Of course, some of the homes have been updated, they have been modernized and they have been given more modern design touches, you’ll find that many people take great pride in preserving as much of the historic charm as possible.
The uniqueness of the homes, the beautiful tree-lined streets, the basements, guest homes, and overall flair of living in Willo have made the area very desirable for people from many walks of life. With the addition of the 20 mile long light rail system running along the entire East side of the Willo Historic District, residents now enjoy even more things about their spectacular community. In Phoenix, there are eight different historic districts near light rail, each with a unique story. Feel free to look around.
