Mesa (population 457,000) was founded in January 1878 by Mormon pioneers, and its population is still roughly one-tenth Mormon. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints operates one of its oldest temples in Mesa (the Mesa Arizona Temple), and the city is a hub for Latter-day Saints residing in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
Mesa is home to the Arizona Museum of Natural History and the Champlin Fighter Museum.
The city is served by Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (Allegiant and Westjet) as well as Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The Metro Light Rail connects downtown Mesa with Tempe and Phoenix.
