Did you know? The town of Litchfield Park is named for its founder Paul Litchfield, an executive of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company who came to Phoenix in 1916 in search of suitable land to farm cotton that was needed to strengthen the rubber in their tires. Litchfield was not successful in motivating local farmers to grow his cotton so instead he got Goodyear to buy 5,000 acres of land (for around $25/acre) around the current day Litchfield Park. The USPS agreed to the name “Litchfield Park” in 1926 and in 1929 the Wigwam Resort was opened to the public.

Goodyear created Litchfield Park Land and Development Company to expand Litchfield Park into a master planned community for 90,000 residents. The project called for about 25,000 homes, 1 college, 1 junior college, 6 high schools, 10 junior high schools and 18 elementary schools. The plans included improvements to the Litchfield Park’s golf course but the developer made numerous mistakes, including selling plots of land right up to the curb line, forcing the city to get permission from home owners before they can put in a sidewalk. They abandoned their plans for growing Litchfield Park before they were completed and sold off whatever land they could.
