Eloy, Arizona is in Pinal County. It lies between Tucson and Phoenix. The Southern Pacific Railroad built a switch in the area in the 1900s. They named the community Eloy, rather than using the initials for East Line of Yuma. At one-point developers wanted to name the area Cotton City, but because the railroad switch was already called Eloy and the mail was dropped there, the town name of Eloy was kept. The estimated population of the town is 17,442.
