Aguila is located on the Eastern edge of the Arizona Outback in Maricopa County, on U.S. Route 60, approximately twenty miles West of Wickenburg.
One of the major activities in the area is agriculture. The fertile valley surrounding Aguila is home to field after field of melons, including cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon.
Aguila is in a picturesque valley just North of the Harquahala Mountain Range. The name Aguila (Spanish for eagle) is probably derived from the Eagle Eye Mountain, which is in the Harquahala Mountain Range.
Aguila is home to about 1200 people. The Aguila Volunteer Fire Department serves Aguila and the surrounding areas, and has been in existence since the early 1980's.
At present time, the AVFD has a group of 21 volunteers and staff, dedicated to serving the community with care and professional pride.
