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.
