Arizona became a state on February 14, 1912. It was the last of the 48 contiguous states to be admitted to the union.

In 2012 the centennial was celebrated all year long, with programs, exhibits and events for all ages relative to the heritage, arts and culture of the state.

The culmination of all those efforts are recorded on the website, Celebrating Arizona's Centennial: 1912 - 2012.
