The Tourist Attractions in Chandler:
Chandler was founded in 1912 and named after its founder, a vet named Dr Alexander John Chandler. Chandler had already been planning the town for some years so when it was first established it quickly grew – the high school opened the same year and only the following year the town centre had been built and a golf course resort opened. Chandler High School is actually one of the oldest high schools in Arizona and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, making this a potential attraction for visitors coming to Chandler.
