Burket House

Burket House

SUMMARY – Constructed 1945
Historic Use: Residence
Present Use: Residence
National Register Status: Not Listed


Constructed in 1945, the house is significant as one of the few pre-1946 building in Tempe; less than three-hundred such buildings are believed to predate the Burket House. It is in the upper 99th percentile of all Tempe buildings in terms of age (p%=0.993). The Burket House is significant for its association with Terrell’s Subdivision, a small 1930 subdivision along south side of W 5th Street between S Wilson Street and S Roosevelt Street. It is also significant as a local variant of Southwestern-style residential architecture.
