The original area of Prescott was selected by Arizona Territorial Governor John Noble Goodwin after his first tour of the new territory.

Groom began surveying the area and selling its lots. In 1881, Prescott was incorporated. On February 4, 1889, the 15th Arizona Territorial Legislature moved the capital to Phoenix.
The city is also part of the large history of the American southwest. It was home to Virgil Earp and Doc Holliday before their infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral. It was a 30-second shootout between lawmen and members of the loosely organized groups of outlaws, the Cowboys, in 1881 that is now regarded as the most famous shootout in the history of the American Wild West.
As of the 2010 census, Prescott has a population of 39,843 people. Read on about the Unincorporated Community of Sun City, AZ.
