Short History of Peoria

Peoria is a city in the counties of Maricopa and Yavapai, Arizona. A major suburb of Phoenix, it is the ninth-largest city in Arizona in population and the sixth-largest in land area. The city was first established by William John Murphy, who had recruited settlers – most being from Peoria, Illinois – to begin a community in AZ. In November 1886, Albert J. and Elizabeth Straw became the first residents. Others who relocated to the area were James M. and Clara Copes, Willian T. and Sylvia Hanna, and James and Ella McMillian. On May 24, 1897, Peoria's plot map was filed with the Maricopa County recorder and named after the settler's hometown of Peoria.

As industrial companies moved into the Valley and the Luke Air Force Base was developed, economic activities began to increase, resulting in more construction of residential housing in Peoria. On June 7, 1954, Peoria was incorporated as a city. According to the United States Census Bureau, it has a total area of 141.7 square miles. It is within proximity to the areas of Phoenix, Glendale, Goodyear, Surprise, Morristown and New River. As of the 2019 census, the city has a population of 175,961 people.

The Peoria Sports Complex was opened in 1994 at the site of the former Peoria's Greenway Sports Complex. Located on North 83rd Avenue, it has a capacity of around 12,000 people and features one main baseball stadium, Peoria Stadium, and 12 practice fields. It is the home stadium for the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres during spring training. The sports complex is also the host of several events like the Arizona Fall League, the Vans Warped Tour, youth baseball tournaments, weddings and many more.
