History

Glendale was considered to be nothing more than a wasteland until William John Murphy started developing the area in the 1850s. He decided to name the town Glendale in an effort to attract settlers and outside investment as he had little cash to his name during the project. Today, the area is considered the antique capital of the world and the city takes that billing seriously.
