Terra Pointe Memory Care and Glendale, AZ
The area that is now Glendale, AZ was all desert in the late 1800s, but that changed thanks to William John Murphy. In 1885, Murphy completed a 40-mile canal from Granite Reef to New River, bringing water to the area. In 1887, he formed the Arizona Improvement Company with the goal of selling the land and water rights south of the canal. He named the area Glendale and built an 18-mile road to it from Phoenix (Grand Avenue) to increase the appeal.
In 1891, families in the River Brethren group formed a temperance colony in Glendale, which attracted more settlers who shared their views on alcohol. A railroad was built and the city grew even more when the Beet Sugar Factory was built in 1906. Even though it only ran for six years, it did a lot to bring in immigrants and migrant settlers.
Today, Glendale has a population of over 250,000 people. It is home to the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League and the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League.
