The history of Phoenix predates the founding of the Unites States. The Hohokam tibe lived in the Phoenix area between the eighth and the 14th centuries. They created more than 100 miles of irrigation canals. The tribe disappeared after the 14th century. Jack Swilling stopped in the Phoenix area in 1867. He thought its climate and terrain would make it ideal for farming. He built canals that used the same paths as the canals built by the Hohokam. The community established here was named Phoenix because it was built on the ruins of an earlier civilization. Phoenix was incorporated as a city in 1881.
