At an elevation of 7,000 feet, in the midst of the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest, Flagstaff is a four season hub of activity. History buffs will delight in the Route 66 nostalgia and the museums and attractions dedicated to Flagstaff’s Native American culture and old west legacy.

The Mormon Battalion was the first presence of Latter-day Saints in Arizona. The first Mormons came to the Salt River Valley in 1877. Within 30 years migration towards what is now Phoenix had begun and a few families crossed the Salt River to settle. By 1912, just 10 months after Arizona became a state, a group of nine members met in a Knights of Pythias Temple, a room above Donofrio’s Confectionery, in Phoenix for the first time.
