There are some people whose impact on their community is forever memorialized through streets signs, subdivision names and other public tributes.

Traveling around Coolidge, you can easily pick out some members of the community who have played an important role within the city and surrounding area at one point in history based on street names. There’s Christensen, Bartlett, Skousen, Macrae and many others.

Of course, there is also Pinkley Avenue.

The street is named after Frank Pinkley, who came to the area in 1901 to oversee what is now known as the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument.
