Getting to know Chandler

Chandler was developed by Dr. Alexander Chandler, the first veterinary surgeon in the Arizona territory, who originally bought 80 acres from the U.S. Government in the Salt RiverValley. By the year 1900, he had amassed an 18,000 acre ranch, which was then subdivided into a town and its surroundings. Agriculture, especially cotton, grains and alfalfa, as well as cattle, sheep and ostriches surrounded the new town. By 1920 Chandler’s population was over 1,000.

More recently, Chandler has enlarged geographically and demographically, with an area of 64.9 square miles and a population of more than 255,000. Housing units are almost 105,000, and the average household income as of 2012 was over $81,000. The median home value is now $291,000.Located southeast of Phoenix, Chandler offers proximity to a large metropolis and a suburban lifestyle.
