The city's website says this: "From 1901 to 1908, the Federal Copper Company operated a smelter on a barren stretch of land several miles northeast of downtown near the Franklin Mountains. After the smelter closed, the land was purchased and later platted as the Castle Heights and Manhattan Heights additions. The first named streets in the area reflected the land’s recent use—Federal, Bronze, Copper, Silver, and Gold. Local architect Otto H. Thorman designed a Georgian Revival influenced residence for Mr. and Mrs. S. H. Levell at 3037 Federal in 1914, which was the first home in new subdivision. Residential construction continued at a steady pace, and many of the first homes were spacious, well proportioned, and designed with Classical Revival and Georgian Revival stylistic influences."
