March Tour

 A driving tour of South Phoenix? So much to see. The Historical League tour covered nearly 30 miles and featured 8 points of interest south of the Salt River. Highlights included a visit to the South Mountain Preserve, a cruise past a home on the Historic Properties Register surrounded now by brand new million-dollar houses, a brief visit to the Sotelo-Heard Cemetery, a drive down "Funky Broadway" past the historic Precision Auto Parts and foundational Black churches and schools, and a stop to browse at Baseline Flowers, the last remaining shop of the Japanese Flower Gardens dynasty. Lunch was at historic Ponchos Mexican Food and Cantina, on Central Avenue, a mainstay for over fifty years.
