Glendale: The Antique Capital of Arizona

The city of Glendale can be found in the U.S. state of Arizona. The city sits within the borders of Maricopa County. Geographically, it can be located in the northwest from the central business district called Downtown Phoenix. The city has a total area of 55.8 square miles; with only 0.1 square miles is water. The rest of the area is land. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city of Glendale has a total population of 226, 721 as of the year 2010.

The city of Glendale started as an empty land which was used by William John Murphy to gain funds for the construction and expansion of the Arizona Canal. Murphy is a native of New York who was living in Flagstaff town in Arizona. He was commissioned to build the 40-mile canal which would help distribute the water to the different parts of the desert in Arizona. He was in great debt when he completed it for the Arizona Canal Company only paid him land, and stock and bonds of the company. Murphy created the Arizona Improvement Company in the year 1887, with the goal of selling the water and land rights just to gather funds for the construction expenses and payroll. The land was then called Glendale. Murphy also built the Grand Avenue, a long road which provided easy access to the people from Phoenix, Arizona’s capital, to Glendale.

Through the years, the city expanded into a mercantile industry. Settlers have begun to live in the city since 1891. The alcoholic beverages were also an interest to a lot of people outside the city, leading to the influx of tourists at certain points of the year. Nowadays, the city of Glendale adopted another name to distinguish it from other cities in the state of Arizona. It is now called the “Arizona’s Antique Capital”. The claim is supported by the 1998 USA Today article, as well as the 2004 Sunset magazine.

The name started to circulate when the settlers in the city began opening antique stores that sell various products from different generations. These specialty shops and boutiques are prevalent in the historic downtown area. In the year 2014, Glendale is home to a total of 90 antique shops, specialty stores, and unique boutiques that provide aim to preserve the legacies of the town, as well as the state’s. Some of the famous antique shops and cafes include Old Town Scottsdale, Zang’s Oriental Restaurant, A Mad Hatter’s Antiques & Collectibles, Antique Haven, Country Haven and Lois Loveables Antiques.
