The Legacy of Lovable Laveen Village

Once an isolated section of the city, Laveen Village has grown over the course of a century to become one of Phoenix’s most beloved communities and neighborhoods.  The area was first settled in 1884, on an isolated tract of land south of what would later become Phoenix proper. The community was kept isolated for years because of the Salt River, until bridges were built to unify the two areas.  In the years since, Laveen Village has become a highly desired area of Phoenix, housing a population of nearly 73,000 residents.

The Homes

The suburban feel of Laveen Village creates a family-friendly ambiance that families and young professionals gravitate toward.  With prices averaging around $186,000 and 64% of residents owning their own home, it’s no wonder Laveen has become so popular—but remained so self-sufficient and quaint—the residents take pure pride in their investments.  The homes in Laveen are unique in style and range from brand new to upwards of nearly 100 years old. Major housing development progressed in the year 2000, with Arlington Estates coming in as one of the largest residential developments in the community’s history.


The Community

Laveen Village is a very unique community with an interesting history.  Once completely isolated from Phoenix, Laveen has been a self-sufficient neighborhood for over a century.  While this urban village has been adopted into the city limits of Phoenix, Laveen was once its own entity, with little to no access to the larger city across the Salt River.  Over time, bridges were built, and communities were united, but Laveen remains an iconic hotspot. The community began in 1884, and saw development in 1911, and even experienced a major residential boom in 2000—but the nostalgic ambiance remains the same. 



The Laveen neighborhood was forced to be self-sufficient from early on due to difficulty of crossing the Salt River, so all the necessities were built to allow the community to be autonomous.  There are two general stores, a car repair garage, and a number of buildings that act as gathering places among community members, including two pools halls and the Laveen Women’s Club building.  The area has a number of working dairy farms, which gives the community a more suburban or rural feel than other villages of Phoenix. Getting to and from Laveen to the larger city has become much easier as time has moved on, but the community will always have a touch of independence and charm.



Laveen Village is still slightly isolated from the urban sprawl of the greater Phoenix area, and for that reason, outdoor recreation is not only easy to come by, it’s right outside resident’s front doors!  Laveen hosts a number of community events, the most popular being the annual barbeque. The community barbeque started in 1950, but in recent years has grown into a rather large event held at Corona Ranch, showcasing local food vendors and fun events like a cow milking competition and pot-belly pig racing!  Of all the villages of Phoenix, Laveen is by and far the quaintest.
