At 150 years old, the Crimson Farmstead is about as close to ancient as Mesa gets.

On June 1, the Mesa Historic Preservation Governing Board approved lifting historic overlay status, clearing the way for the Homestead at Lehi Crossing. The proposed 262-unit, four-story multi-family residential development on approximately 9 acres is at the southeast corner of Gilbert and McDowell Roads.

Today, it’s just a barren sliver of a bustling city, a sunken chunk of land surrounded by busy thoroughfares.But in 1870, it was a very different story …  The four “founding fathers of Mesa” are Charles Crismon, Frances Pomeroy, Charles Robson and George W. Sirrine; they are memorialized in a statue at Pioneer Park.
