“Stewards” of our history
In 1996, CBN’s management purchased and relocated the firm and offices to the historic 1914 L. L. Steward House, just north of downtown Phoenix in the Roosevelt Historic District. The house’s tasteful Victorian massing and Prairie School design elements create an elegant architectural composition, leading to its citation as a “significant streetscape element” in the application for historic status for the Roosevelt neighborhood.
Its first owner, “L. Bob” Steward, was an early Arizona teacher, cattleman, cotton farmer and organizer of the Citizen’s State Bank in Phoenix; he was a campaign manager for Henry Fountain Ashurst in his 1912 election to the U. S. Senate. A newspaper advertisement for Southwest Building & Investment Co. appeared in a February, 1914 issue of “The Arizona Republican” featuring the partially completed Steward House; the house appears in the lower right corner of this ad. You can also see photographs of how the house looks now.
