Weedville, Arizona was a small community founded in 1911, in an area which at the time was outside the city limits of Peoria.
Ora Rush Weed (1868–1942) was a Methodist minister from Kansas. It is unknown why Weed decided to leave his hometown and with his wife Phoebe and family.
They moved and settled in Arizona. Some of the members of his Kansas ministry followed him and together they homesteaded the area north of Thunderbird Road and 75th Ave, outside of what at the time were the city limits of Peoria
