Phoenix is the capital of Arizona.

By 1868, a small colony had formed approximately four miles east of the present city. Swilling's Mill became the new name of the area. It was then changed to Helling Mill, after which it became Mill City, and years later, East Phoenix. Swilling, having been a confederate soldier, wanted to name the new settlement Stonewall after Stonewall Jackson. Others suggested the name Salina, but neither name suited the inhabitants. It was Darrell Duppa who suggested the name Phoenix, inasmuch as the new town would spring from the ruins of a former civilization.

Phoenix officially was recognized on May 4, 1868, when the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, the county of which it was then a part, formed an election precinct here.

At the time of the 2000 census, the city of Phoenix had a population of 1,321,045 living in 465,834 households. The median age was 30.7 yrs.
