Murphy Bridle Path

This particular landscape or streetscape’s history is significant in telling the story of how Phoenix developed in the late 1880’s and the early years of the 20th century.

William J. Murphy, who moved from Illinois to Phoenix in 1883, built the Arizona Canal and established the Valley citrus industry in the northern extension of Central Avenue in 1895. The roadway cut through the Orangewood subdivision he developed and was first paved in 1920.

In the early years, horses, being a popular mode of transportation, traveled up and down the street. As motor vehicles took over, the horses, Weight said, moved to the east side of North Central Avenue. The earliest reference to the Murphy Bridle Path that the city’s historic preservation office discovered was in 1948 when the bridle path was dedicated by the “Arizona Horse Lover’s Club.”

Murphy was also responsible for creating the lushness. He planted a row of ash trees on each side of the street from 1895 to 1906. Then, he added a row of olive trees on each side from 1906-1915. In the 1960’s, the ash trees were replaced by pine trees and residents complained so heartily that the city replaced the pines with ash trees in the 1970’s.
