History

Royal City was founded in 1956 and officially incorporated on February 14, 1962.[3] The townsite was previously named Royal Flats, and the entire area Royal Slope, thus the name Royal City.[4] During the 1960s, there was a Titan I ICBM silo located near the town.[5]

Today, this small farming community is most known for producing a wide variety of crops, thanks to a long growing season. Apples, cherries, peaches, timothy and alfalfa hay, melons, potatoes, onions, wine grapes, pears and corn are grown in this area. The Royal slope area is a popular place for birders, hunters, and golfers as well.

The Royal Knights (Royal High School) have won division 1A state football titles in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2005, and 2007.[6]
