Nestled between two counties in Arizona is the city of Peoria. This suburb is far from the 'prairie fire' it was said to be at first. The Suburb that sits on two counties is the sixth largest city in terms of land. That means there are many that live in this suburb. As such, West Valley Pawn will offer its services to those in Peoria and more.
How Peoria Shaped up to be What it is Today
Born from the Salt River Valley, Peoria was established as a community to rest from working on the Arizona Canal in November of 1886. Reaching the settlement was tedious; until the Grand Avenue was built in 1887. This road connected Peoria, Glendale, Alhambra and Phoenix to the Vulture Mine. The Mine is long closed but Grand Avenue remains to lead up to the mine to this day. The city was finally recognized as a town on May 24th 1897, after sending the plot map to the Maricopa County recorder. The city was named in honor of Peoria, Illinois. The town has seen major growth from the 1880s to today. During such time, the Chamber of Commerce was formed (1919), the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts was built from the Old City Hall (1975 to present); and finally, the establishment of Peoria High (also 1919).
Nowadays, the city is well know for its resort and luxury; having many high value homes and residences. It is also famous for its Spring Training facilities. Even now, the Greenway Sports Complex, now the Peoria Sports Complex, serve as a training/development ground for the San Diego Padres (¡SÍ, SEÑOR!) and the Seattle Mariners (Fish!). It's also a pioneer in Solar technology with the Maricopa Solar plant, using and powering homes throughout this region and other parts of the Valley.
