What began as a project to move a house, has become an effort to move a state and the nation
In 2006, the historic adobe home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor was slated for demolition. When a few community leaders met to plan its relocation, they didn't realize that the O'Connor House would become both a physical location and a symbolic movement to rebuild the way Arizona solves its pressing political, economic and social issues.

"My hope is to

re-create a place that will be a center for problem-solving and for bringing together groups with divergent views."

Society, at all levels, has a need to work together to solve the many challenges facing our state and nation.

What is O'Connor House?

In the 25 years that John and I lived in our adobe house, we hosted many events – for friends, colleagues, foreign visitors, legislators , members of Congress, and other distinguished individuals. We brought people together from both sides of the aisle (R-D) and from other perspectives to share a home-cooked meal and good conversation, which resulted in a better chance of reaching consensus.

We all know that it's easier to reach agreement with friends—and we make friends through social contacts and shared experiences. When you become better acquainted and enjoy each other's company, you're less apt to be partisan and at odds when you are back at work [in Washington, in the state legislature, in town council meeting or in other venues where people come together to participate in democracy].

I know that it is possible for people to sit down together and engage in cooperative problem solving.

This is what I want O'Connor House to stand for. We can do it.

The possibilities are endless."

- Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
