History of Glendale
Throughout the 1880s, William J. Murphy was able to complete a series of canals that ran through the barren desert that once was Glendale, Arizona. In the early 1890s, the canals were completed and people began to settle around the canals, as it was the main source of water in this area of the Sonoran Desert. In 1895, Glendale Grammar School opened, attracting people from all over the valley. The rest is history, as Glendale continued to expand into the city it is today.
