Willo Historic Neigborhood

Welcome to

Willo Photo Book Update

The Willo Photo Book Team has been hard at work all summer. We are happy to announce that meetings with our book publisher, Prisma Graphic, are progressing on schedule. Prisma, a local company, is one of the country’s leading marketing and print service providers – and #1 ranked in AZ. They will be handling the layout, design, and printing for the Willo Photo Book.

Over 400 Willo home photos and photos of historic landmarks, including interesting historic tidbits of information on the homes, will be featured in the book. The history of Willo, spanning several decades, will also be recounted. Willo’s earliest residence was built in 1910, with infill homes built as late as the 2010s. Each decade will be covered, including events that prompted the architectural style of each era.

Look for the September issue of Inside Willo, where we will reveal the book’s cover and a few more surprises such as participating local luminaries and writers. We will also update The Official Willo Historic Neighborhood Facebook Page and this website. 

Sales are brisk… our first printing is almost sold out. If you haven’t pre-purchased your copy-do so now. 

You can find the purchase button below or on the Willo FB page. All proceeds will go directly to the Willo Neighborhood Association to support our own neighborhood events and activities.
