History

The first settlers in Mesa were probably the Hohokam, who constructed canal systems to make living on the arid land possible. Their probable descendents, possibly including the Tohono O'odham, remain in the area. Much later, Spanish missionaries and soldiers traveled through the area. Several groups of Latter Day Saints pioneers settled nearby. Eventually, residents from other areas of the Phoenix valley moved into Mesa and the population grew on its own. [2] [3] Hohokam is the name applied to one of the four major prehistoric archaeological traditions of the American Southwest. ... The Tohono Oodham are a Native American tribe formerly known as the Papago who reside primarily in the Sonoran Desert of the southwest United States and northwest Mexico. ... A Latter Day Saint (LDS) is a person who identifies with the Latter Day Saint movement and is a follower of Mormonism. ...


Timeline

  • Circa 1 AD. The Hohokams arrived in the area. They built an extensive canal system.
  • 1358. A large flood occurred, perhaps damaging the canal system.
  • 1865. At a ferry west of present-day Val Vista Road, an establishment called Maryville was created. The ferry was used by soldiers.
  • 1877. After Maryville was abandoned, a group of LDS pioneers arrived in March 1877 and settled in an area called Lehi (in the northwest part of present-day Mesa). The pioneers were led by Daniel Webster Jones, who had been asked by LDS officials to direct a party of people in establishing a settlement in Arizona.
  • 1878. An 85-member LDS pioneer contingent called "The First Mesa Company" arrived from Utah and Idaho. Their leaders were named Crismon, Pomeroy, Robson, and Sirrine. They decided not to stay with Daniel Webster Jones' group in Lehi and moved southward and began to clear out the Hohokam canals.
