Story Maps


Phoenix has a variety of historic resources that illustrate the city’s story including unique ethnic heritage properties, the last vestiges of Phoenix’s 19th century buildings, and interpretation for buildings no longer present. We have curated a collection of interactive tools to provide virtual and up-close experiences with our historic resources.


Below are links to publications, such as videos and ArcGIS story maps, that highlight Phoenix’s historic resources. For more information regarding eligible properties within the city, please contact the Historic Preservation Office.




Asian American Historic Property Survey

In the mid-2000s, the Historic Preservation Office commissioned inventories of ethnic heritage properties within the City of Phoenix.  The results of those surveys have been published and are also available on our website. We have since built upon the survey information to create a tool that engages with the public in an interactive way as well as including properties that have since become eligible. The story map allows for a virtual tour of Phoenix’s rich Asian American heritage from anywhere. This story map will continuously evolve with new additions so be sure to check back for updates!
