Mesa, the Spanish word for "table top," is the third largest city in Arizona behind Phoenix and Tucson. According to the 2010 Census, Mesa's population has risen to over 439,041 people. Mesa's original inhabitants, dating back to over 2000 years ago, were the Hohokam people who built the original canal system. By 1100 A.D., the Sonoran Desert was transformed into an agricultural oasis by the Hohokam's canals where water was delivered to over 110,000 acres! These system are so well constructed, they are still in use today. Mesa is also known for its Mormon settlers who arrived in 1877 and still houses the sacred. Mesa however has transformed itself into quite a cultural city with plenty of attractions including The Mesa Arts Center, The Salt River, and The Cactus League Spring Training which is home to the Chicago Cubs.
