Litchfield Park Homes for Sale
Litchfield Park is a historically affluent community Just North of Goodyear, AZ named after its founder, Paul Weeks Litchfield, who was an executive for the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. He came to the Phoenix area looking for good farm land to grow long-staple cotton. It was only available only from the Sea Islands off the coast of Georgia or Egypt.
Paul Litchfield was able to convince the city of Goodyear to form the Southwest Cotton Company in Phoenix, with himself as its president. He purchased 36,000 acres in the Salt River Valley. And also 5,000 acres around the present site of Litchfield Park, then known as Litchfield Ranch. Much of the land was bought for as little as $25 per acre.
In 1926, the name was changed to Litchfield Park. and in 1929 the Wigwam Resort was opened to the public. In 1926 a plan was developed to expand Litchfield Park to include 25,000 homes, a college, a junior college, eighteen elementary schools, ten junior high schools, and six high schools. As well as improvements to the town’s golf course. And harness track at an expense of at least 750 million dollars. Many mistakes were made in the development. And they abandoned their plans for expanding Litchfield Park before they were completed and sold whatever land they could. In 2015 the population of Litchfield Park was just over 5700 residents.
