The Birth of a “Thoroughly Modern City”: Life in Phoenix, 1870 to 1910

March 28, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Heritage Square is lucky to have snagged this engaging and knowledgeable speaker to talk with us about Early Phoenix. ASU Professor Emeritus Philip VanderMeeer will talk about daily life in Phoenix from the 1870s to around 1910 and how that life was impacted as Phoenix developed its utilities and services. Phoenix was laid out in 1870 in an unlikely, uninhabited site in the Sonoran desert. From adobe buildings and unpaved streets, how did Phoenix develop into a state capital and population center by 1910? And how did the city infrastructure grow to make life bearable for its residents?  Join us as VanderMeer discusses these intriguing questions.

Discounted parking in the Heritage Garage with validation.

Free and open to the public, but please let us know you’re coming by registering below.  Registration is now closed, but there’s plenty of room.  You’ll just need to set up your own chair.

The talk will be held in the Lath House Classroom, located upstairs in the wooden open air structure behind the Rosson House.
