Goodyear, Arizona, is located in Maricopa County. In 1917, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company bought 16,000 acres of land where the town now sits in order to grow Egyptian cotton for rubber tires for airplanes during World War I. Originally known as “Egypt,” it eventually underwent a name change to honor the company.
