Eisendrath Center for Water Conservation

This historic Pueblo Revivial Style adobe was originally commissioned by Rose G. Eisendrath. Hailing from Chicago, she discovered Arizona in the 1920s, and commissioned the house in 1930, after being refused at a local resort due to her Jewish ethnicity. It was constructed by architect and master builder Robert T. Evans, and became a destination for entertaining. The home, which is listed on the Tempe Historic Property Register, underwent a restoration and now contains the only Water Conservation Education Center in the Valley. Docent-led tours available Thurs. and Sat. by appointment only.
