The Mesa Grande Ruins: The History of the Hohokam Site, The Preservation and Restoration Efforts, and What’s There For You To See
Dr. Jerry Howard and Tom Wilson

This presentation will focus on the history of the Hohokam village and canals in west Mesa at what is called the ‘Mesa Grande Ruins.’ The story of the origins of the village and its people will be told as well as what happened to the village after it was abandoned. The last part provides a preview of the site following its ‘Grand Opening’ to the public in early 2013.
