More than 2,000 years ago the land which is now Mesa, Arizona was a thriving agricultural community shaped out of the Sonoran Desert by the Hohokam Indians. With a network of innovative irrigation canals, the Hohokam harvested various crops including corn, cotton, tobacco and squash. Most of these crops were unknown to the Europeans when they arrived in the Americas. Around 1500 the Hohokam disappeared, possibly driven out of the area by the Apaches. The first Europeans, Spanish conquistadors led by Francisco de Coronado, passed through this area in the 1500’s but any attempt at settlement was thwarted by the Apaches until the 1800’s when larger groups came to the Phoenix Valley supported by the United States Cavalry. Dr. A.J. Chandler had an important hand in the establishment of Mesa by using heavy machinery to enlarge the Hohokam canals for improved agriculture.
By 1940 Mesa was the seventh largest city in Arizona with a diverse population of Native Americans, Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians and the Mormons who had migrated from Utah and Idaho. The area continued to grow during World War II as both American and British pilots trained at Williams Air Force Base and Falcon Field. Those air fields eventually morphed into civilian airports and a bustling commercial aviation industry. Although agriculture employed one out of two Mesa residents as late as 1960, the city is now a vibrant suburban enclave with retail, technology and tourism dominating the economy. With so much to do in Mesa, a Grade Potential Tutor can get you caught up in any academic subject so you can enjoy the city’s sights and sounds.
Because of its long history, one of the best things to do in Mesa is discover the area’s bygone days. Mesa Grande Cultural Park takes visitors back several hundred years to the classical age of the Hohokam Indians between 1100 and 1400. The site includes ruins of adobe walls, a temple mound and the remains of the sophisticated agricultural canals which sustained the Hohokam civilization for over 2,000 years. To discover more about Mesa’s history a trip to the Mesa Historical Museum is mandatory. The museum includes exhibits chronicling Mesa’s past as well as a large collection of historic agricultural equipment.
For baseball fans, the Chicago Cubs recently built a state of the art spring training facility at Sloan Park. One of the most sought after tickets of the spring season, the Cubs play pre-season games in late February, March and early April. The Oakland A’s also invade Mesa in the spring, making Hohokam Stadium their second home. For a positive outdoor experience a short drive out to Saguaro Lake is well worth the time. The lake features camping, boating and hiking. Its main feature, however, is a ride on the Desert Belle, a modern riverboat which tours the lake during fall, winter and spring. With views of towering canyon walls, immense Saguaro cactus and exotic Arizona wildlife, a trip aboard the Desert Belle is unforgettable.
