Port Aspire was founded in 1910 by a group of Americans. The City's original name was Port Dickson. However, in 1912, the city's name was changed to its present day name. In World War 1, much of the city's infrastructure was destroyed except a small military base up west. The Great Depression of the 1930s greatly affected tradings in the city, resulting in many shops closing down. In World War II, the city was spared from the war, but the US Army maintained a significant presence at a large military base 2 miles north. Throughout the years, the military base known as the Black Mesa Research Facility, became the most secure military base in the city. It was built in the 1940s. The base is maintained by scientists, US Army, US Air Force and the United States Marine Corps. The Army is tasked in guarding the base from threats.

At present day, the city is being expanded as a global well-known city. In 1947, Port Aspire International Airport was built, initially to cater small jets. Starting the 1960's , the airport was expanded to accomodate Boeing 707's and Boeing 747's. In 2007, the airport became the largest in the world with 4 terminals, 3 runways, and more than 40 airlines fly to and from the airport. It is Considered a global airport as of 2015.
