Scottsdale is a city in the eastern section of Maricopa County, Arizona. It is bordered by Phoenix, Paradise Valley, unincorporated land of the county, and Carefree on the west, the Tonto National Forest on the north, Tempe and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community on the south, and more of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Community and unincorporated land, Fountain Hills, and the McDowell Mountain Regional Park on the east.
Like most cities in the area, Scottsdale was once home to the Hohokam people around 300 BC to 1450 AD. After their disappearance, the land was occupied by the Akimel O'odham, or Pima, and the Tohono O'odham Native Americans. It was a Pima village called Vaṣai S-vaṣonĭ (rotting hay) when the English settled into the area.
During a visit to the Salt River Valley in the early to mid-1880s, U.S. Army Chaplain Winfield Scott was impressed with the area for the potential agriculture it could produce. He returned in 1888 with his wife Helen to purchase 640 acres of land that is now downtown Scottsdale. Originally known as Orangedale, it was renamed Scottsdale in 1894. In 1896, the Scottsdale Public School system was established and the first schoolhouse was opened. Between 1908 and 1993, a population boom occurred in Scottsdale as the 1908 Granite Reef Dam and 1911 Roosevelt Dam were developed. The area became a small market town that provided services for families in the agricultural industry.
During the Great Depression, many artists and architects moved to the town. This included American architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright and his wife. They purchased 600 acres of land at the bottom of the McDowell Mountains and developed Taliesin West, his winter home and headquarters. His architectural influence is everlasting throughout the region as many of the buildings were designed by him. A 125-foot spire memorial that was designed by Wright can be found in North Scottsdale, along with a major street named after him.
In 1942, the Thunderbird II Airfield, which is now the Scottsdale Airport, was opened. This was where 5,500 pilot cadets got their primary flight training before World War II ended. In June 1951, the City of Scottsdale was incorporated as its population steadily grew with the arrival of technology companies like Motorola. The city adopted the nickname (The West's Most Western Town" and became a tourist destination as the Safari Hotel and the Hotel Valley Ho were opened in 1956.
As the population continued to grow, the city had to expand its development into the Indian Bend Wash flood plain. This subsequently led to the creation of the flood control project Scottsdale Greenbelt in 1973. Expansion in Scottsdale also led to the development of large scare, master-planned communities such as Scottsdale Ranch, Gainey Ranch, DC Ranch, McDowell Mountain Ranch, and Desert Mountain.
However, with growth comes the possibility that the southwestern scenery of Scottsdale will be destroyed. In 1991, the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy was founded to preserve the McDowell Mountains and its surrounding areas. As of 2019, Scottsdale has a population of around 258,069 people. It is the sixth-largest city in Arizona.
