In the 1890s, lots were sold in the area which was known as Ingleside.
Avondale Estates was founded in 1924 by George Francis Willis, a patent medicine magnate, who purchased the entire village of Ingleside to create a planned community. The city was named afterStratford-upon-Avon, England, birthplace of Shakespeare. Downtown buildings were designed in a Tudor style to reinforce this image, as were many of the houses in the city. Community amenities such as a lake, tennis courts, a clubhouse, parks, and a swimming pool were built for residents.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.1 square miles (2.8 km2), of which 0.88% is water.
