In 1885, the 13th Arizona Territorial Legislature chose Tempe for the site of the Territorial Normal School, which became Arizona Normal School, Arizona State Teachers College, Arizona State College and finally Arizona State University.The Maricopa and Phoenix Railroad, built in 1887, crossed the Salt River at Tempe, linking the town to the nation's growing transportation system.Due to this as well as being the home of the main campus of Arizona State University, Tempe has a fairly dense, urbanized development pattern in the northern part of the city with a growing skyline.Going south, development becomes less dense, consisting of single-family homes, strip malls and lower-density office parks. The Salt River runs west through the northern part of Tempe; part of the river is dammed in two places to create Tempe Town Lake.
