Phenix City is mainly a bedroom community of Columbus. Originally built as housing for mill workers, the Eagle and Phenix Mill Village incorporated with Girard to form
Phenix City. Bridges were built so that mill workers could walk to work. It was along these bridges that the largest concentrations of nightclubs formed. Soldiers from Fort Benning were the primary clientele, but many people from Columbus would joy-ride across the bridges looking for fun.
