About Mesa

Mesa History – The history of Mesa dates back two thousand years to the Hohokam Indians. The Hohokam, whose name means the Departed Ones, built the original canal system that spread over 125 miles and is still used today. Then the Hohokam disappeared possibly due to overpopulation, drought, water issues or a dispute with hostile Indians though no one knows for sure. Apache Indians, east of the Mesa area, drove the Spanish away in the 1700’s. U.S. Army troops fought the Apaches in the late 1800’s, opening the way for white settlement. Kit Carson and other explorers came through the Salt River Valley during the early part of the 19th century. 

Meanwhile, Mormons (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) were settling Utah in order to escape persecution in the Midwest. The migration was partially subsidized by men who joined the U.S. Army during the Mexican War (1846-47) and donated their pay to the church. Because all except the officers were Latter Day Saints, the unit was called the Mormon Battalion.  The completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 in Utah increased pressure for expansion beyond Utah, as easier transportation augmented Utah’s population and reduced the amount of available arable land. Consequently, Mormon Church officials asked Daniel Webster Jones to lead a group to settle in Arizona.  

Falcon Field Airport and Williams Air Force Base were built in 1941 to provide training for World War II pilots, Falcon Field for the British Royal Air Force and Williams for U.S. pilots.  Air conditioning came into more common use and tourism also began as a major force in the late 1940’s. The decade of the 1950’s brought more commerce and industry to Mesa, including early aerospace companies. However, until 1960 more than 50 percent of the residents earned their living directly or indirectly from farming, mainly citrus and cotton. The 1960’s through 1990’s saw more high-technology companies, now over 100 firms. Health facilities grew especially during the 1980’s and 1990’s to service the larger population.

With the exception of the decade of the 1920’s, when the cotton prices plummeted, Mesa increased by at least 79% every decennial census through 1990. In 1990 the census showed Mesa to have the highest growth rate of any city over 100,00 in the United States; the population grew 89% from 152,404 in 1980 to 288,091 in 1990. In 2000 Mesa’s population is approximately 404,000, over 100,000 people more than in 1990. The mild winter climate, beautiful environment, and strong economic conditions attract more residents every year. From humble beginnings, Mesa has developed into the third largest city in Arizona and the 46th largest city in the United States. The Census Bureau now designates the Valley as the Phoenix-Mesa Metropolitan Statistical Area. Mesa’s pioneers might not recognize the present-day city, but surely would be proud of what they began.
