Queen Creek is 29.
The town celebrates its incorporation birthday on Sept. 5.
The community has grown over the years from its rural roots to a family friendly town, according to the Queen Creek website.
Newcomers may not know, but before it adopted its current name, the area was known as Rittenhouse because of a railroad spur near Rittenhouse and Ellsworth roads.
