Founded in 1896 and originally known as Coldwater, the town of Avondale was settled along the banks of the Agua Fria River under the leadership of William “Billy” Graham Moore, a former blacksmith who supposedly ran with the Civil War’s infamous Cantrell’s Raiders. Moore operated a freight station on the west bank of the river, but after an argument with a postal inspector who proclaimed that homemade “hooch” was not to be sold in an enterprise that handled government mail, the post office was moved to the Avondale Ranch and took on the ranch’s name as the Avondale Post Office. Since that time, Avondale has grown tremendously to become a thoroughly modern city, near the heart of the Phoenix metropolitan area.

About the Author:

Working with the City of Avondale’s extensive photographic archive, author and longtime resident Jerry Squire presents in this volume more than 200 images depicting the establishment of Avondale and its growth over the last century. With additional material drawn from the collections of the Avondale Public Library and local families, this entertaining retrospective chronicles the town’s agricultural origins to its current rank as one of the fastest growing communities in Maricopa County.
