  Phenix City is located in Russell and Lee County within the state of Alabama. Phenix City and Girard consolidated in the early 1920s, which is the reasoning for Phenix City being in two counties.  Location of Phenix City in Lee County and Russell County, Alabama.

Back in the late 1800s, Phenix City received its name after "Eagle and Phenix Mill," which was in the area at the time. Originally spelled "Phoenix," it wasn't long after that the "o" was taken out of Phoenix due to the mistake in distinction of Phoenix, Arizona and making an error in the spelling.

As of 2017, the population of the city was 37,325 people. Phenix City lies in the Columbus, Georgia-Alabama Metropolitan Area, while the Lee County nominal is in the Auburn-Opelika Metropolitan Area. Also it is a suburb immediately West of Downtown Columbus, which is just across the Chattahoochee River. In 2007, BusinessWeek named Phenix City the nation's #1 Best Affordable Suburb to raise a family.

Columbus was established in 1828 by an act of the Georgia Legislature, as a trading post to strengthen the Western border of Georgia. Columbus is the home of many things, including: Aflac, Synovus, and Total Systems (TSYS); and can also be known as the last “frontier town” of the original Thirteen Colonies. Fort Benning Military Reservation, the Army's Maneuver Center, borders Columbus on the South and Southeast and is not only a primary U.S. Army training facility, but also the major employer of the region.
