Hawes Road

Much of Queen Creek is still rural or county island. This picture is taken at the corner of Hawes and Happy roads, just north of Hunt Highway, looking west. Hawes Road is named for Ernest E. Hawes, who started farming in Queen Creek in the 1930s.


  1. That looks about the same as it did years ago when I lived there!

  2. Queen Creek was just starting to be swallowed by suburbia when the housing market crashed, so there's still a lot of farmland (that might not otherwise have been there)and still a lot of areas that might be more developed if the growth hadn't stopped. I'm sure there will always be county islands, like the one I've photographed here, but QC has changed a lot just in the three years I've been here.
