Chandler was founded by Arizona Territory's very first veterinary surgeon, Dr. Alexander John Chandler, who came in 1891. As is the case with so many valley suburbs, it began as a sizable ranch and a man with a dream of founding his own town. By 1912, Dr. Chandler's dream was realized as the town site office and the Chandler High School opened. Just one year later Arizona's first golf resort opened, the luxury Hotel San Marcos. Chandler was on its way to becoming more than just another rural town in the desert, it was a vacation destination. Today it is so much more than just another Phoenix suburb, and has so much to offer.
Chandler is an interesting middle class city, as a casual drive around will prove. You will drive by a diary farm with cows eating under fans and misters and just a few miles up the same road you will encounter a communications manufacturing plant or a master planned community. This unique diversity adds to the charm of Chandler and has lured many professional football players active and retired to call it home, including Donovan McNabb, Tank Johnson and Matt Leinart to name just a few.
