If you like my website, and/or if you've found it useful, please consider making a small donation to my Just Giving page, which I've set up just for this purpose. To begin with I'm collecting for a charity whose work I have benefitted from myself (and continue to do so): the British Heart Foundation. It would be great to raise £100 in the first month.

If you have already donated ... Thank You!

US States: Cities

This page lists the capital cities of the 50 US states, and the largest city in each state. It lists the states in the order in which they joined the Union, giving the date in each case.

Where no "Largest city" is listed, the state capital is also the largest city.

See also US States: Nicknames, and US States: Other (for anything not covered here).
