Buckeye history:

Thomas Newt Clanton led a small group of people, including men, women and 10 children, from Creston, Iowa to Arizona. Clanton came to improved his health and it must have agreed with him because he lived to the old age of 82 years. The Buckeye Canal was built and completed in 1886. This canal, named for Ohio, the Buckeye State, gave a big boost to the development of the area. Clanton helped to build the canal and then became the first official white resident of Buckeye. The town site was laid out in 1888. The first post office was named Buckeye in 1888. Malon Jackson, who had built the canal, organized the Buckeye Irrigation Company, along with his partner, Bucky O’Neil. Jackson named the town Sidney for his hometown in Ohio. But because the canal was such an important part of the area, the name of Buckeye prevailed. The name was officially changed to Buckeye in 1910.
