Living in the Mesa Historic District

Mesa is one of Arizona’s oldest cities. Originally settled by the Hohokam Indians, its history dates back almost 2,000 years. There is little known about what went on between when the Hohokam Indians left and when the Mormon Pioneers came to the Mesa Valley in 1877. An important treasure the Indians left was the remains of a sophisticated canal system which would latter be a template for the Phoenix Metropolitan infrastructure.  Mesa became an incorporated city in 1883 with a population of 300 people. Now it is the nations 38th largest city. For those who have lived in the area for a long time they may say some of the original farm town charm has been lost, but if you look you can still find it.  In Downtown Mesa you can still browse through the music at the iconic Milano Music store or stop in at the Blue Adobe Grille for dinner. The extension of the light rail is also making it easier to get around.

Another gem nestled in the scheme of Mesa’s Real Estate is this Historic Home. Built in 1925 it offers a lot of character without having to sacrifice modern convenience and style because of the upgrades. Take a look at this link to see more – Historic Mesa Home. If you like it and are interested, we can set up a showing, but if you wait too long it might already be sold!
