Winterhaven Tucson is a historic neighborhood in central Tucson. It was Tucson’s 21st historic district, and features 265 homes, and three well sites. The subdivision itself is notable for it’s 22 homes that were designed by Anne Jackson Rysdale who was the only registered female architect during her early career.

The annual Festival of Lights were begun in 1949 by C. B. Richards. He was inspired to begin a festival of lights after seeing a similar festival in Beverly Hills in the 1930’s. He purchased the first set of lights, and donated them to the neighborhood back in 1949. He also purchased the Aleppo Pine Trees that line the streets by Guy Monthan’s nursery that was going out of business. He personally judged the first Festivals, awarding a $100 prize to the homeowner who had the best decorated home.
