Welcome to the Heritage Gallery

 

Pardon our dust this summer as we install a new exhibit — You are Here: Mapping Early Phoenix — in the Stevens-Haustgen Bungalow’s Heritage Gallery, opening September 5th. Using old maps, pictures and deeds, this exhibit explores the development of early Phoenix — specifically how those original 98 blocks became the bustling downtown we enjoy today. The exhibit showcases not only the artistic, scientific, and geographic qualities of maps, but depicts the people and events that shaped how boundaries of all types were drawn, both literally and figuratively.

Thank you to the Maricopa County Recorders Office for partnering with us for this exhibit, and to APS for their generous grant to help support You are Here.

  • You are Here: Stevens-Haustgen House

    The Stevens-Haustgen House was built in 1901 as a rental property by Constance Stevens.
    It was purchased by Edward Haustgen in 1911 for his sisters Marguerite and Anna. Marguerite Haustgen lived there from 1937 to 1952. The building is another good example of the California bungalow style with its wide porches and low roof lines.
