Tempe Bakery/Hackett House
Constructed 1888

The construction of these two buildings is associated with the first significant phase of commercial development in Tempe. The bakery complex was owned by William Hilge, a German immigrant, who produced bread in ovens and delivered it in Tempe and Mesa. In 1907, the Craig family purchased the buildings and converted them to a residence. Their daughter, Estelle, later married Roy Hackett, and lived on the property until it was sold to the City of Tempe in 1974.
