Chandler, Arizona is a large city in Maricopa County that consists of 63 neighborhoods and is the 4th largest community in the state.

In 1891, veterinary surgeon Dr. Alexander Chandler settled on a ranch in the area and began studying irritation engineering. By 1900, he owned 18000 acres and began planning a town, which he wanted to name Chandler Ranch. Agriculture was the main industry in the area and initially the primary crops were cotton, corn and alfalfa. However, starting in the 1910s ostrich farming became a key industry. The birds were raised for their bright plumes which were popular on women’s hats. In 1912, Chandler High School was established and the town-site office was opened. In 1913 the first golf resort in the state opened in Chandler. The growing community weathered the Great Depression, but was hard hit a few years later by the cotton crash of 1920. By 1950, the population had risen to 3,800 and its founder passed away, but not before his vision had been made reality. In May of 1954 Chandler officially shifted from town status to that of a city.
