  • State Capital City Phoenix   (Capital since 1889 - located in   Maricopa County)

    The State name:  Arizona, is derived from a combination of two words from the Papago Indian dialect of the Pima language; "Aleh" and "Zon" together as "Aleh-zon" meaning "little spring." The "little spring", located in Mexican territory, is near a large silver discovery made in Arizona Creek.
