History

Originally named Foster, Stanfield is named after Sen. Robert N. Stanfield who purchased the area for use as the headquarters of his extensive sheep and wool enterprises. Because of its proximity to the railroad, the site was used for shearing wool, holding sheep for shipping, and storing supplies for the operations in warehouses. (At one time, Sen. Stanfield and his brothers operated the largest sheep ranching operations in North America.)

With the development of an irrigation system serving the lands around Stanfield, Sen. Stanfield joined with a developer to subdivide the area and create the town of Stanfield, operating excursion trains to bring interested buyers to Stanfield to see the lots that were being offered for sale. Sen. Stanfield donated a number of parcels for public purposes, including the site of the high school.
