About Us

Chandler, Arizona

image6

Chandler is located in the East Valley, in the southeast part of the  Greater Phoenix area. It was named for a veterinarian, Dr. A. J.  Chandler, who settled in the area in 1891. The town of Chandler began in  1912, with the opening of the Hotel San Marcos in 1913. In 1920 the  Town of Chandler incorporated, with Dr. Chandler as its first Mayor.  The City of Chandler has worked diligently to make the downtown area a  dining and entertainment destination, and their efforts are paying off  as boutique shops, art spaces and eclectic cafes have steadily increased  their presence. The  downtown storefronts have been restored to a  modern version of their original  turn-of-the-century look, and the  plaza has been redesigned and named after the  City's founder. The  Center for the Arts, new parks, restaurants and retail  centers mark an  exciting future for the City.
