El Mirage is a small city located in Maricopa County, Arizona, once inhabited by several Native American tribes. In the late 19th century, a group of Mormon pioneers established a farming community in what is now the city of Peoria. In 1937, William Grupe purchased land in the area and founded the town of El Mirage, envisioning it as a community for retired military personnel. The town grew slowly until the 1980s, when it experienced a period of rapid growth due to affordable housing and a quieter lifestyle. El Mirage’s population has steadily increased since then, and it is now home to over 35,000 residents. The city has faced challenges, including economic struggles and a reputation for crime in the 1990s, but has made significant strides in improving the quality of life for its residents. Today, El Mirage is a thriving community with a rich history and a bright future.
