Peoria Celebrates 60 Years as a City 


Though the City of Peoria is honoring and celebrating 60 years as a city, our history goes back to the 1880’s. Some could challenge that our beginnings go back as far as the Native Americans who inhabited and traveled along the river now known as New River. As far back as humans have roamed this area, agriculture has been the reason for settlement.

In the 1880’s, four farming families from Peoria, Ill. were enticed to the areas’ climate and agriculture potential. By 1897, a plat map was filed with the Maricopa County recorder, naming the settlement after their hometown.

Today, Peoria is a vibrant community of more than 160,000 residents that is recognized as having one of the highest quality of life reputations in the country. Agriculture is no longer the reason people move to Peoria. The city now boasts the state’s second largest lake with Lake Pleasant and the Cactus League spring training home of the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres. Peoria is also home to the Challenger Space Center and two critically acclaimed live theaters in the Arizona Broadway Theatre and Theater Works. Residents now enjoy one of the state’s highest performing school districts, nationally accredited recreational services and a neighborhood lifestyle which has been honored by Money Magazine, Forbes, Kiplinger and others.

In a 2013 Citizens Survey conducted by the National Research Corporation, 93 percent of respondents said that Peoria provided an outstanding quality of life. 98 percent said they would recommend Peoria as a great place to live. Like the early settlers, and the inhabitants before them, Peoria has always been a great place to call home.
