All about Phoenix

The well-established Hohokam tribe were the first known settlers of the Phoenix area before the existence of any city in the eastern United States. In order to make the dry Salt River Valley inhabitable, the tribe constructed a system of irrigation canals reaching over 135 miles to moisture the land and make it productive for crops. 

Some of the canals that the Hohokam tribe initially built are still used today. The Hohokam vanished suddenly in 1450 A.D. Historians are not sure what caused the sudden disappearance of the tribe. It is assumed that a prolonged famine wiped them out.

Arizona became a state on February 14, 1912, and on that same day, Phoenix was named the capital. The Theodore Roosevelt Dam was constructed on the Salt River to supply water for irrigation and electrical power to the city. 

By 1920, Phoenix’s population doubled to 30,000. The economy during this time was cotton, citrus, and cattle, all made possible by the Theodore Roosevelt Dam.
