Queen Creek was incorporated in September of 1989 and was not always known as “Queen Creek”. It was known as “Rittenhouse” because of the railroad spur by Ellsworth and Rittenhouse roads. Believe it or not, residents used to flag down the trains to get a ride to Phoenix!
As the community’s growth increased, the use of the railroad became less and less, and eventually they changed the name to Queen Creek. While being a small town, it is known for its innovation and for constructing many award-winning developments designed for future growth. It is one of the most family friendly towns in Arizona!
