Learn more about Phoenix

The first known inhabitants of the Phoenix area were the Hohokam people in the 1300s. They dug hundreds of miles of irrigation canals that transformed the area into a feasible agricultural one. Between 1300 and 1450, severe floods and periods of drought are thought to have forced the Hohokam out of the area. When the Mexican-American war ended in 1848, Mexico sold its northern territory to the U.S. and the modern Phoenix area became part of the New Mexico Territory. Army troops and pioneers began to settle in the area. In 1867, settler John “Jack” Swilling formed a small farming community close to what is now Phoenix. That same year, Lord Darrell Duppa named the area “Phoenix,” as the name describes a city born from the ruins of a former civilization. In 1881, the city was incorporated with a population of 2,500. After the establishment of a railroad, the Phoenix grew rapidly. The city became Arizona’s capital in 1912 under President William Howard Taft. Today, Phoenix is the capital of Arizona and its largest city.
