Living in Avondale, AZ

This modern city had its beginnings in 1880 when William "Billy" G. Moore settled along the Agua Fria River and named the community Coldwater. A small stagecoach stop for decades, the area consisted of a not much more than a general store and saloon. Once pioneers began venturing to the West Coast, many travelers visited the small stop on their trip. After the community's center moved closer to an area near Avondale Ranch, the city changed its name and incorporated in 1946.

Once Phoenix began to sprawl and eventually became the fifth-largest metropolis in the country, many residents began moving into the suburbs. Today, Avondale boasts a quality of life that attracts visitors and residents to the area due to its green space and celebrated community events.
