Welcome to the Old Fort Lowell Neighborhood Association Website
The Old Fort Lowell Neighborhood has been called a microcosm of Southwest history because of the many cultures that are part of its past. A historic district lies within its boundaries; ancient Hohokam dwellings and artifacts are recorded and interpreted in Fort Lowell Park. Historic Mormon aqueducts still carry water and harbor wildlife. Ruins of the Fort Lowell military camp are preserved and interpreted by the Arizona Historical Society Branch Museum; descendants of Mexican settlers of the village of El Fuerte (The Fort) still reside in the adobe homes of their ancestors.
In 1980, Ned and Roz Spicer called a group of interested neighbors together to discuss the formation of a neighborhood association. The group was concerned about the need to preserve and enhance the historical, social, and semi-rural residential character of the neighborhood. To further these ends, the Old Fort Lowell Neighborhood Association was formed on April 12, 1981.
On this website you will find information about joining the neighborhood association, about upcoming events, about the iconic San Pedro Chapel, and about the historic district within the neighborhood boundaries. As you explore this site, please feel free to contact the association at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments and to learn how to become more involved. We’d love to hear from you!
