Encanto Manor Historic District

South of Thomas Road to Edgemont between 7th and 15th Avenues

Encanto Manor Historic District is one of thirty-five designated historic neighborhoods in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Encanto Manor is among the smallest districts with only eighty-three homes, one church and a parish house. Two gentlemen, John Lester and L.M. Hammon platted Encanto Manor back in 1945 after purchasing the land from the estate of Jame Dorris

James Dorris was a successful retail and wholesale grocer, and he had a part in the suburban estate development of Encanto Manor. James Dorris arrived in Phoenix in 1888 and by 1892, he had established a grocery store at the southwest corner of First and Washington streets. His grocery store was to be the “finest and largest grocery store” in the city.

Encanto Manor Historic District backs to the 18-hole championship Encanto Golf Course, which is the third oldest course in Arizona, built in 1935. Amenities include a driving range, pro shop, golf clinics, tournaments, practice greens and youth lessons.
