Litchfield Park Arizona.....
Litchfield Park is a city in Maricopa County Arizona 20 miles northwest of Phoenix. It is where the famous Wigwam resort resides...with golf, and other outdoor recreational venues. Mountain views in some areas, and lots of rich land and new development.
In 1916, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company sent Paul W. Litchfield to purchase as much land as he could, which totalled 16,000 acres. The land was originally used to grow Egyptian Cotton. This industry supplied many jobs for the area.
Later, Paul made Litchfield Ranch the headquarters for the Southwest Cotton Company (later, Goodyear Farms.) Paul and his wife Florence, built their beautiful winter estate, Rancho La Loma, on the hill overlooking the town's worksite, which is now Litchfield Park.
The Wigwam which was originally called the "Organization House", served as guest quarters for the visiting Goodyear Tire executives. Finally in 1929 it became a public resort.
Last count in 2013, there were over 5,392 people living in Litchfield Park...much more today!
With restaurants, resorts, Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium, Out door activities and more, Litchfield Park has grown into a wonderful community to call home. The housing market is growing. Builders such as Mattamy Homes, Cachet at Wigwam, Beazer, Blandford and more, come home to Litchfield Park.
