Avondale, Arizona, in Maricopa county, is 11 miles SW of Glendale, Arizona (center to center) and 15 miles W of Phoenix, Arizona. Avondale is located along the Augua Fria River and is included in the Phoenix metropolitan area. It's a modern city, situated in a prominent commercial corridor which includes business parks, retail centers and numerous restaurants.

In 1880, William "Billy" G. Moore established a settlement along the Agua Fria River and named it Coldwater. He constructed a saloon, a general store and created a stage stop. In the early days, cotton was a major factor for the economy. During the late 19th century the city was a stopping place for people venturing out to the "Golden Coast." During the early 1900's the post office located in Coldwater was relocated to an area near the Avondale Ranch. The post office was referred to as Avondale. In 1946 Avondale was incorporated as a city.
