Renovation work on Phoenix's Monroe School begins

[Source: Barbara Stocklin, City of Phoenix] – According to Debbie Gilpin, executive director of the Children’s Museum of Phoenix at 215 N. 7th Street (formerly Family Museum), historic rehabilitation work funded by an Arizona Heritage Fund grant is currently underway. Museum staff and architects met with City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office representatives to discuss moving the rehabilitation work forward and revising the master plan to scale down the rear addition and remove ADA access from the building’s front. Seeking a potential phase II Arizona Heritage Fund grant for additional historic preservation projects was also discussed.
