A blast from the past

To the right, sits Headquarters, viewed from the southwest corner of the intersection of West Garvey Avenue and North Maricopa Road. [Brian Petersheim Jr.]

In Maricopa, shops and storefronts have come and gone over the past few decades. In the black-and-white photo from the 1960s, you can see the Maricopa Shopping Center North. On the left are Kimball’s Drug Store, Maricopa Mercantile and a beauty shop. On the right are Headquarters Buffet and Restaurant, Woods Apartments and the water tank. Only Headquarters remains.
