History of Cactus Corridor

Cactus Corridor is rich in history!

The area which would include what would become Scottsdale was originally inhabited by the Hohokam, from approximately 300 BC to 1450 AD. This ancient civilization farmed the area and developed a complex network of canals for irrigation which was unsurpassed in pre-Columbian North America. At its peak, the canals stretched over 250 miles, many of which built remains extant today, some having been renovated and put back into use in the 20th Century. Under still-mysterious circumstances, the Hohokam disappeared around 1450 or 1500, the most likely theory having to do with a prolonged drought. The area’s later occupants, the Pima and O’odham (also known as the Papago), are thought to be the direct descendants of the Hohokam people.
Before European settlement, Scottsdale was a Pima village known as Vaṣai S-vaṣonĭ, meaning “rotting hay.” Some Pima remained in their original homes well into the 20th century. For example, until the late 1960s, there was a still-occupied traditional dwelling on the southeast corner of Indian Bend Road and Hayden Road. Currently, those Pima who live within Scottsdale reside in newer homes rather than traditional dwellings. Many Pima and Maricopa people continue to reside on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, which borders Scottsdale directly to the south and east.
In 1896, these settlers established the Scottsdale Public School system, and opened the first schoolhouse, which was followed by the opening of the first general store by J.L. Davis, which also housed the first post office for Scottsdale in 1897. In the early 1900s the community supported an artists and writers culture, culminating in the opening of the region’s first resort in 1909, the Ingleside Inn, located just south of the Arizona Canal and west of the Crosscut Canal (Indian School Road at about 64th Street) in what is today Scottsdale.<span style=”font-size: 13.3333px;”> </span>Also in 1909, Cavalliere’s Blacksmith Shop opened in downtown Scottsdale, and the original schoolhouse was replaced by the much more expansive Little Red Schoolhouse, which remains standing to this day. While not in its original building, Cavalliere’s has been in continuance operation since that time. (Source)

The first Cactus Corridor properties were built in the 40’s and included horse stables, rings, and equestrian trails.  Development in the corridor continues today. With the real estate boom in the 80’s and 90’s, developers began buying up the horse properties and transitioning them to higher density housing. Residents of the corridor, hoping to preserve the rural charm and equestrian flair, successfully worked with the City of Scottsdale to amend zoning.  The new zoning ensures that future developments keep up the tradition of low density housing and maintains the equestrian experience for residents.   Today, there are multi-use trails where you’ll find walkers, bikers, horses and an occasional camel or two; many homes have been completely updated and restored.
Cactus Corridor residents are part of the Scottsdale Unified School District.
