HP Staff tour Phoenix's White Gates House

[Source: Barbara Stocklin, Phoenix Historic Preservation Office] -- Kevin Weight of the city's historic preservation office and Jim McPherson of the Arizona Preservation Foundation (APF) met with the owner of the property known as the White Gates House on May 2. The house, which is located at 4918 E. White Gates Drive, near Camelback Mountain, was built during the 1950s and was designed and occupied by Phoenix architect Alfred Newman Beadle. The house is currently vacant and in need of repair; it was listed on APF's list of most endangered properties in Arizona last year. The owner, Lynda Maze, purchased the property with the intention of rehabilitating it and sought advice and assistance from the City and APF. Ms. Maze may request historic designation and a grant to assist with rehabilitation.
