545-561 N. 4th Avenue

This commercial building was designed in the 1930s by noted Tucson architect, Josiah Joesler, and commissioned by Tucson developers John and Helen Murphey. Joesler, like Roy Place, has been credited with the design of many significant Spanish Colonial Revival buildings in Tucson, and is often considered the “father of Tucson architecture”. Joesler’s commercial architecture can be attributed to Murphey’s financial backing and influence. This and other Joesler buildings contributed to the development of N. 4th Avenue as a commercial district and were built during the corridors developmental peak in the 1920s and 1930s.
