10 Year LCI Update, Avondale

Founded in 1924 by George F. Willis, the City of Avondale Estates is the earliest known planned community in the southeast. Willis transformed the area known as Ingleside from a pastoral farmland to a lively village modeled after Stratford-upon-Avon. A team of civil engineers, landscape architects, and city planners helped Willis create a community of homes, shops, and recreational areas in a lush, green landscape with many small neighborhood parks.
