About

The Mesa Historical Museum, dedicated to the preservation of the history of Mesa, is located in the old Lehi School buildings and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

History
The original Lehi School, built on land donated by the Rogers family in the 1880s, was a one room adobe building (similar to the replica in front of the museum). The school kept expanding along with the growing population. However many years of improvements were not enough to save the school and the school was slated for demolition in 1976. Realizing it would be more expensive to tear down the school buildings, school officials sold the buildings to The City of Mesa and the city resold it to the Mesa Historical Museum.

Exhibitions
Mesa Historical Museum features exhibitions on area history and the following exhibits:

  • Searching For Mesa - This exhibit shows the history of Mesa through more than 200 historic photographs and artifacts
  • Thanks for Tuning In - This exhibit explores the history and fun facts of the local t.v. show, The Wallace and Ladmo Show, that captivated three generations of Arizonans.
