History & History Related Items

Fredonia is a relatively new town, started in 1885, amongst old ruins and magnificent scenery. The town was begun by five men who wanted to have irrigation for the area. They worked together to build a dam to preserve water for farming and drinking. Rain water was stored and wells were dug but the water never was consistently good until around 1935 when a new water system was installed. Irrigation allowed the area to have good farming and orchards. The area now has a good deal of recreation for all seasons.

Fredonia was named by the Town Water Company in 1889 where in the minutes, they refered to the area as Fredonia. The loose translation from the English and latin is place of freedom.

The original settlers of the area were the Anasazi. They farmed here and raised livestock. They also built most of the cliff dwellers for which Arizona is known. The group left their homes to move south around 1300 A.D.
