Yesterday...Today
Yesterday...The Ranch! 
The Town Hall Campus in Youngtown, called Clubhouse Square, was originally a working ranch owned by Gilbert and Frances Greer. Mrs. Greer deeded the property and buildings to the Town in 1961. By this time, the Town had been incorporated - in 1960.

The Clubhouse was the homestead of Mr. and Mrs. Greer. It now houses the Municipal Court, and is home to Town Council meetings, along with numerous public meetings and club functions. Town Hall, where the Town ManagerTown Clerk and Finance departments now reside, was formerly ranch hands’ housing.

On Alabama Avenue, around the corner from Town Hall, is the current Community Development Building with houses the Community Development Manager/Building Inspector office. In the 1960s and 1970s, these offices comprised Town Hall and Police Headquarters. They originally were bunkhouses for ranch workers.

North of Town Hall are buildings that were once a milk shed, a tack and equipment storage shed and a garage. These now contain, respectively, The Youngtown Municipal Court Administrative Offices,  the Arts and Crafts Center, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) personnel.

The current Community Development and Public Works offices were designed and built by Frances Greer as a bunkhouse, then became the Youngtown Utilities Office. After the Town utilities were sold, it served various purposes before becoming the offices for Community Development.

As Youngtown was being developed, the Youngtown Historical Society log cabin was the headquarters for engineers and craftsmen. Only the Youngtown Library is a new building. It was built in 1994 and remodeled in 2013.

Today...Setting the Stage for Success
Located in the midst of Northwest Phoenix, Youngtown maintains its small town atmosphere while benefiting from immediate connectivity to the amenities of the larger centers surrounding it. The Town itself is just 2 square miles and has 6,200 residents, yet its trade area contains more than 200,000 people in a 5-mile radius.

Seven parks, a lovely lake, special Town events and three commercial centers provide fun opportunities within walking distance. Once in the car, Youngtown residents are provided an abundance of entertainment in Glendale, Peoria, and Surprise.

Youngtown is a community in transition. The former sleepy retirement community now is home to 80% young people. The Town is changing with the times: increasing public landscaping, introducing public art and forging partnerships to update commercial centers.
