About Black Canyon City

Black Canyon City lies deep in a canyon cut through volcanic rock at the base of the Bradshaw Mountains. Sonoran Desert vegetation, including the saguaro cactus, thrives throughout the canyon, making a vivid impression on travelers descending from the north on Interstate 17.

In the 1800s, a road was built through the canyon, connecting military forts. This was also used as a stage coach route, and along this route Jack Swillings built a home in 1871. In 1894 a post office was established, under the name of Canon, which was closed in 1906. Black Canyon City was established in 1955 and is now home to 2,697 people (as of the year 2000). The elevation is 2000 feet.
