From our very beginning, our community has found ways to accomplish the impossible. Nothing’s changed.
Charles Trumbull Hayden was among the first to defy convention in our community. He challenged naysayers by building a ferry service at a part of the Salt River people said was uncrossable. Thus was the beginning of our unstoppable ingenuity.
We are Tempe. We are making waves in the desert.
