Glendale, Arizona

 

Glendale is a city in Maricopa County, Arizona, located approximately nine miles (14 km) northwest of Phoenix. According to the latest Census figures, the population of the city is 252,381 individuals. In the late 1800s, all of Glendale, Arizona, was sand.

William John Murphy, a New York native who lived in Flagstaff at the time, was in charge of constructing a 40-mile-long (64 km) Arizona Canal from Granite Reef to New River for the Arizona Canal Company. He completed the canal in 1885, which would provide water to desert terrain. Since he had agreed to be paid with Arizona Canal Company stock and bonds rather than money, he was deep in debt.
