Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA



 


Notes: Phoenix /ˈfiːˌnɪks/ is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. State of Arizona and the county seat of Maricopa County.

Phoenix contained an estimated 2005 population of 1,475,83, making it the sixth largest city in the United States. As of 2006, the Phoenix Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was the 13th-largest in the United States, with an estimated population of 4,039,182.

Local Akimel O'odham settlements, thought to be the descendents of the formerly urbanized Hohokam, concentrated on the Gila River alongside those of the Tohono O'odham and Maricopa peoples.
Pre-incorporation history
Passing through the area in 1867, Jack Swilling of Wickenburg, Arizona stopped to rest at the foot of the White Tank Mountains and observed land that had great potential for farming.
