Tempe, AZ separates the rest of the East Valley from the main city of Phoenix, giving the northern part of the city a fairly dense urbanized development with a growing skyline. As you head south the city morphs into a less dense community focused on single family homes, strip malls and office parks.

The Tempe City area was first settled by Hispanic families from Southern Arizona. These families are known to be some of the first to help construct the first two irrigation canals in the area, the Kirkland-McKinney Ditch, and the San Francisco Canal.
These same settlers also started small farms and, in 1872, founded a town called San Pablo just east of Tempe Butte. To the west of Tempe Butte was Hayden’s Ferry, named after Charles Trumbull Hayden who was the owner of a mercantile and freighting business. Over time, these two settlements became one community, soon known as Tempe in 1879. The name “Tempe” was reportedly given by “Lord” Darrel Duppa, an Englishman who helped establish the nearby city of Phoenix, because the butte, the river, and the surrounding green fields reminded him “of the Vale of Tempe in Ancient Greece.”
