The Sailboat Bend District is located in the southwestern section of the City. It is the largest of the three districts and includes more than 550 buildings. It is also the oldest neighborhood in the City, dating from the early 1900s until the 1950s. The majority of the houses are small, one-story, vernacular residences with Bungalow, Mission, or Mediterranean Revival style details. These were popular elements found in adjacent communities and throughout the United States. The inventory also includes some larger homes located along the New River. There are several Key Contributing sites associated with the growth of this community, including the Swing Bridge, the West Side Fire Station, and the West Side School. These last three sites are also listed as local individual landmarks.
