Flagstaff Community Profile

Flagstaff, Arizona is located at the intersection of I-17 and I-40, and is the largest city in Northern Arizona.
The City is also the regional center and county seat for Coconino County, the second largest county in the 48
contiguous states (by area). 


The City of Flagstaff is comprised of just over 64 square miles nestled at the base of the San Francisco
Peaks. It is surrounded by one of the largest pine forests on Earth. At nearly 7,000 feet, Flagstaff is also one of the highest elevation cities in the United States.


Flagstaff drew its name from a very tall flagpole made from a pine tree to celebrate our nation's centennial in 1876. The City is a year-round mecca for visitors.


History


In 1855, Navy Lieutenant Beale was surveying a road from Fort Defiance in New Mexico to Fort Tejon in California, and passed over the spot where Flagstaff now stands. Beale continued on, but noted the area’s resources. Years later, Boston emigrates who originally intended to settle near Winslow, but found the area already settled in, moved on towards California. On July 4, 1876, the emigrates stripped a pine tree and raised an American flag celebrating the nation's centennial. Their “flag staff” became a landmark for other travelers.

Communication

Flagstaff has a daily newspaper, The Arizona Daily Sun, and several weekly / bi-weekly publications. There are also several radio stations.
