Product Overview

Though their role in the history of Scottsdale''s development has been marginalized over the years, Mexicano residents made many important contributions to the city''s establishment and growth. In the early 1900s, businessman E. O. Brown recruited Mexicanos from Arizona border towns to work in the area''s cotton fields and on the farms. These laborers were the first people to live in the neighborhood that now makes up the center of Old Scottsdale. Some called it the "barrio," but Scottsdale Mexicanos called the area "home." Today only a few buildings remain that can attest to the neighborhood''s original inhabitants, most notably the Old Adobe Mission and Coronado School, now the home of the Scottsdale Historical Museum. The preservation of these buildings and the more than 200 photographs included in this book are just a few of the testaments to Scottsdale''s fascinating Mexican heritage.
