Phoenix was incorporated in 1881 and became the state capital of Arizona in 1912. As railroads connected it to the rest of the country, Phoenix began to grow with the “5 C’s” of their economy: climate, copper, cotton, citrus, and cattle. Surprisingly, the city was a hub for farming and agriculture in their early years.
After Arizona achieved statehood the city experienced a major population growth, which continued through World War II. Multiple army and air force bases in the area helped the economy shift and diversify. Now, Phoenix is the largest capital city of any state in the country and the most populous city in Arizona.
