History Of Estrella Mountain
The Estrella Mountains were pioneered by the Akimel O’odham people, and currently the Mountains soar over the villages that once inhabited them in the Gila River Indian Community. The land was claimed as the New Spain during the colonization of America.
Mexico eventually announced its liberty from Spain. The Estrella Mountains became part of Mexico. The United States obtained the Estrella Mountains from the Mexican people in part due to the Gadsden purchase. The Butterfield Overland stage moved in and started moving people from California to the area. It was a popular trade route. Eventually, progress took over and the stage went away to make room for the railroad.
The last battle between native Americans, that of Pima Butte took place in 1857. The Akimel O’odham people were overtaken by the Apache, Mohave, and Yuma people. Afterwards a lot of gold seekers were searching for Montezuma’s treasure which is believed to still be buried in the Sierra Estrellas,
In 1985, Charles Keating of the renowned Lincoln Saving & Loan debacle purchased federally reserved land from the government, to create a master planned community inside the foothills of the Estrellas. A year later, development started. In 1999, a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course was added to the community. Since that time many more amenities along with shopping and schools came to Estrella. As the community continues to grow, the charm of it will never be lost.
