Glendale in Maricopa County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Glendale's Towering Flagstaﬀ
For over a half century, at this very location, a majestic wooden flagpole once stood proudly as a mark of distinction and pride in Glendale. The old wooden flagpole, over 110 feet tall, was shipped from Oregon aboard three flat cars. It was donated by Mr. M. A. Sherman, owner of the Phoenix streetcar lines.
On October 7, 1964, the old wooden flagpole was laid to rest and soon after was replaced with the flagpole that stands here today.
