Mesa originated over 2,000 years ago when the Hohokam people inhabited and civilized the terrain by constructing a complex series of canal systems – some of which are still in use today! The Hohokam civilization eventually disappeared in 1450. Mormon pioneers arrived in 1877 and started the area’s recent settlement.
