It is a standing testimony of late Victorian architecture and was erected in the early years of the 20th century. This is the only historic house along the length and breadth of Mesa that has been fully restored.Victorian furniture and items have been used liberally to decorate the historic house. It recreates a tiny little Victorian house amidst the din and bustle of modern era.

Arizona Temple Visitors Center

The Morman temple lies to the south of it. The temple is surrounded on all sides by 20 acres of lush green landscaped gardens. The interior of the temple houses gardens, statues, paintings etc. You can of course take a guided tour round the temple.

Easter and Christmas times witness the decking up of this place with bedazzling illumination, light shows and holy scriptural reenactment. The Mormon temple does not allow visitors and does not open to the public.

Organ Stop Pizza

This one happens to be the most famous and special attraction of Mesa and most tourists make a beeline for Mesa to catch a glimpse of it.

It houses one of the world’s largest theater organs which is called the Mighty Wurlitzer. It is equipped with more than 5000 pipes and is also a slice of history in itself. The silent film era witnessed the creation of this mammoth organ as a cost cutting measure.

It was created to economize on a pricey orchestra and build something that could perform the job of many musical instruments in spite of being a single unit. In short, it is an all-in -one orchestra, rolled into a single massive piece.

Park of the Canals Mesa

 It is another of the main attractions of Mesa, being associated with aboriginal history. It dates back to 700 B.C. and consists of an ancient Hohokam Indian canal system. It is flanked by a sprawling botanical garden open to visitors.
