The history of this area began in 1880 when the Arizona Canal Co. built a canal that brought water to the desert. The canal was completed in 1885 and homesteaders began to move closer to the canal.

The town began to grow around the street, and in the 1890s Glendale became a line for the Santa Fe Railroad, which brought more settlers, and more goods to the area.
