While we don’t necessarily have a long history here in the Valley, what we do have is pretty incredible -- starting with the historic Valley Ho hotel.
Not only is the hotel itself a well-preserved mid-century relic with a Hollywood story, it’s playing host to a daylong mid-century modern architecture tour of Scottsdale featuring the hotel, Garden Apartment District, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Price House and more led by dynamic local expert Ace Bailey.So, he and his wife Helen returned to the region in 1888 and purchased 640 acres of land abutting the Arizona Canal, which was still being constructed.In the next few years, Winfield and his brothers planted orange groves and encouraged people to settle in Orangedale, which was later renamed Scottsdale in honor of the town’s founder and advocate. He looked at the stark landscape and saw the potential for something wonderful to grow. Army Chaplain Winfield Scott fell in love with Arizona’s dry climate and beautiful terrain upon his first visit to the Salt River Valley.The exhibitions are stunning too, with current runs of art tackling topics like border control, American regionalism, and one piece called "You Who Are Getting Obliterated in the Dancing Swarm of Fireflies." The latter is a light show you just have to see to believe.
