The westernmost suburb of the Phoenix metropolitan area, the City of Buckeye is home to affordable homes on large lots, quality schools, beautiful mountain and desert scenery, and quick freeway access. Buckeye is a popular destination for home buyers who enjoy a small town feel and who want to get the most bang for their dollar.
Buckeye used to be called Sidney back in the 1800s until the development of the 10 mile Buckeye Canal in 1884. The canal became so important and recognized that people just started calling the town by the canal's namesake. The name was legally changed to Buckeye in 1910 and incorporated in 1929. In 2008, Buckeye was featured on The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer in a week-long series called "Blueprint America". In 2013, a student from Verrado High School became nationally famous for overcoming Down's Syndrome to join the school's cheerleading squad. The town officially voted to become the City of Buckeye in 2014. In 2017, billionaire Bill Gates purchased almost 25,000 acres between Buckeye and Tonopah to build a "smart city" called Belmont.
The City of Buckeye is home to a growing population, surging home values, quite a few farms with homes on acreage, and several beautiful master planned communities. Nestled at the foot of the White Tank Mountains, Buckeye's land area is larger than that of Phoenix and much of it is undeveloped. Downtown Buckeye is reminiscent of the "old west" with its vintage buildings. Downtown Buckeye has been experiencing a revival—sip coffee at Millstone Cafe and grab a sandwich at Cafe 25:35.
