Carmen Michea House
Built between 1886 and 1889, this Sonoran row house was the most common house type in territorial Florence. It was transformed to Spanish colonial revival in 1940. This house displays features like the stepped parapet and mission-tile canopy. During this time period, many Spanish/Mexican architectural features, such as the flat roof, were reintroduced. The low adobe wall defines the property lines on the south and west.
