Buckeye was founded in 1888 and is located just 35 miles west of the Phoenix-Metropolitan area. Being so close to Phoenix makes Buckeye a wonderful place for work, sightseeing, and an exciting nightlife, yet far enough away to retain a comfortable small town feeling. Therefore, residents can enjoy the amenities found in a metropolitan city and throughout its western suburbs, and then return to the quiet comforts of home.
Buckeye stretches from almost Wickenburg to Gila Bend, the Hassayampa River to Perryville Road and is considered the western most community of the Valley of the Sun. Buckeye, like the rest of the Phoenix, has experienced rapid growth, but with nearly 600 square miles of land there is plenty of room to grow. Town planners project it will take over 30 years before Buckeye is completely built out.
Buckeye has a great small community and each year residents get to enjoy Countryfest in the fall, Pioneer Days in the spring, and a great family 4th of July.
Homes in Buckeye are very affordable and with the amount of land available it gives buyers the chance to expand their floor plan and size of lot. Buckeye is also home to world-class retail, entertainment, health care, education, and employment opportunities and the best is yet to come.
Buckeye is in an excellent location as it is intersected by five highways, home to a general aviation airport, and served by the railroad. Virtually every major mode of transportation makes Buckeye accessible from multiple points, ideal for businesses and visitors. In addition to this, the Town of Buckeye sits on the state’s largest untapped groundwater aquifer, the Hassayampa River Basin. Buckeye also has magnificent views of the White Tank Mountains making it one of the most scenic cities in the West Valley.
Buckeye once an agricultural town, is now becoming one of the best cities in Arizona, and those residents who are proud to call Buckeye home have found a great place to live, work and discover the best that Arizona has to offer.
