Mesa Grande is an ancient treasure in modern Mesa and is part of the Arizona Museum of Natural History. Once a bustling civic center, this prehistoric archaeological site features one of the last remaining platform mounds surrounded by a plaza, which was built by the ancestral Sonoran Desert dwellers between AD1100 and 1450. Come and explore a unique part of Mesa’s history, enjoy the walking trails and have an outdoor adventure with us today!
