Learn more about Waddell

Waddell, AZ is one of many unincorporated communities in Maricopa County. It sits about an hour northwest of Phoenix.

The community is named after Donald Ware Waddell. He was an investor of the New York City firm called Brandon, Gordon, and Waddell. This firm organized the private financing that allowed a dam to be constructed. It now sits on Agua Fria River and creates Lake Pleasant. In 1935, Donald laid out the original town site on his property, located at the northeast corner of what are now known as Waddell Road and Cotton Lane. Donald served on the board of the Maricopa Water District and invested in land through his interests in the Arizona Citrus Land Company and the Waddell Ranch Company. The dam was renamed the New Waddell Dam for Donald’s contributions to the community after his death in 1963. Though the town never developed as planned, the rebuilt post office dating back to 1937 still stands today, marking the original town site. It is said that the original town site was marked by a citrus tree planted during the Great Depression by a farmer named Truman, which stood until February 2009.
