The city limits of Phoenix encompass a wide range of pricing and style of housing. Many urban residential areas have seen a resurgence of late as buyers are demanding homes closer to public transportation and employment centers.
Phoenix was incorporated as a city in 1881 after being founded in 1861 near the Salt River, near its confluence with the Gila River. The city eventually became a major transportation hub in North America and a main transportation, financial, industrial, cultural and economic center of the Southwestern United States. The city has a notable and famous political culture and has been home to numerous influential American politicians and other dignitaries, including Barry Goldwater, William Rehnquist, John McCain, Janet Napolitano, Carl Hayden, and Sandra Day O’Connor. Residents of the city are known as Phoenicians.
