The Coronado Historic District is one of the larger historic districts in Phoenix, covering about 1-1/2 square miles and includes about 5,000 homes.  consists of a number of small subdivisions; many were originally portions of Syndicate Place, Homewood Tract, and Ranchitos Bonitos subdivisions. Construction of residences in the neighborhood generally went from south to north, west to east.

Most homes in the neighborhood are one-story. Typically the smaller subdivisions were not developer/architect driven so homes were built over several years. Thus, one can find an interesting mix of architectural styles in Coronado, predominately bungalows (California, Classic, Craftsman), English Tudor, Spanish Colonial Revival, although one can also find examples of Pueblo Revival, Southwest (a blend of Spanish Colonial Revival and Pueblo Revival), and Transitional/Early Ranch. One exception is the Womack two-block subdivision on the eastern portion of the District that was constructed all at once.

The Brill Line trolley ran along 10th Street from Washington Street up to Sheridan Street from 1913 to 1946. Emerson Elementary School, now the Phoenix Elementary School District Offices, opened in the fall of 1921. Our large neighborhood park, Coronado Park, was developed by the city in 1936 at Palm Lane and 12th Street.
