Flagstaff is a city in and the county seat of Coconino County, Arizona. According to a 2006 estimate conducted by the United States Census Bureau the population of the city was over 58,000. Flagstaff is the principal city of the Flagstaff Metropolitan Statistical Area, which had a population of over 127,000 in 2007. The city is located in northern Arizona, where the climate is a bit cooler; timber was a major export of the city and continues to be so even today.
Flagstaff was built primarily on the lumber, railroad and ranching industries. It was founded in 1876, and during the 1880’s the city began to grow rapidly thanks mainly to the railroad coming to the town. By 1886 it was the largest city on the railroad between Albuquerque and the west coast. Today the city is the regional center for finance, education, health care, office use and government, and sits north of the Phoenix metropolitan area along Interstate 17, which technically isn’t an interstate but is still included in the Interstate Highway System.
During the summer months temperatures in the city hit around 103 degrees during the day, with overnight lows often dropping down to around 80 degrees. During the winter months, however, temperatures typically hit around 68 degrees during the day, with lows often dropping down to around 45 degrees overnight. Snow is almost unheard of in the area, like most places in Arizona.
