The history of the Phoenix area begins with Hohokam civilization, which could have started there as early as 300 B.C.E. The first farmers of Phoenix, they built an impressively elaborate irrigation system in the Pueblo Grande before mysteriously disappearing a little over 500 years ago.

In addition to still using some of these canals, if legend is believed the citizens of Phoenix also owe their city's name to the Hohokam. According to legend, pioneer Darrell Duppa saw the ruins of the Hohokam people and, believing another civilization would be born from the remains, dubbed the city "Phoenix" after the mythical bird that rose from the ashes.
