Historic designation could lead to brighter future for Tucson’s Sunshine Mile

By Henry Brean | Tucson.com

Here’s something that will make some longtime Tucsonans feel old: That store on Broadway near Country Club Road where they used to buy shoes was just added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The new designation is expected to help preserve — and maybe rejuvenate — about 160 historic mid-20th-century buildings along a stretch of East Broadway known as the Sunshine Mile, one of Tucson’s first high-end suburban shopping districts.

Iconic locations in the area include the old Valley National Bank, Barrow’s Furniture, Sambo’s Pancake House, and Hirsh’s Shoes, which closed in 2016 after 62 years in business.
