The Wilbur Street Historic District is a good example of the change that occurred in Mesa during the time it was established. Due to population needs, smaller more manageable lots were platted vs the large, high maintenance garden lots that were common in the original communities.
Back in the 1920’s when this home was built, the Mesa Arizona Temple was the third largest LDS church and the largest outside of Utah. The Detroit Tigers, the early Cactus League, became the first Major League Baseball team to begin training in Arizona and the Alhambra Hotel was reconstructed from its 1893 build.
Downtown Mesa, less than a mile away, is bustling (with exciting growth on the horizon), but still offers that small town feel. Many new businesses have emerged like Cider Corps, Mezona Market and Worth Takeaway and old favorites like Queens Pizzeria, Nuthaporns Thai Cuisine, Mangos, The Mesa Arts Center, three museums and The Nile still remain after all these years. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind home in one of the most convenient and eclectic areas, minutes from the light rails and a variety of arts, music and delicious local fare.
