Where Is It?
Leslie LeRoux of the Make Higley Historic! blog writes:
When founded, Higley served as a postal district, school district and commercial center for the entire San Tan farming community, what we now know as Queen Creek, Combs, Chandler Heights, south Mesa and Gilbert.
The last remaining zip code for Higley, 85236, is only in use at a post office on South Higley Road and East Ray Road (see map below).
The areas that were once known as Higley were annexed into the towns of Gilbert, Mesa, and Queen Creek.
Both the Higley Center for the Performing Arts and Higley High School are located at South Recker Road and East Pecos Road in Gilbert.
The Higley Unified School District currently defines its boundaries as far north as East Warner Road, as far south as East Ocotillo Road, as far west as South Greenfield Road, and as far east as South Sossaman Road.
