Scottsdale continues to maintain its image as a town with intriguing ghost towns and mining camps, a Native American reservation, vast cotton and citrus farms, and isolated ranches. Let’s learn more about this stunning city.
A U.S Army Chaplain called Winfield Scott visited Salt River Valley in the mid-1800s and was impressed by the favorable climate for agriculture. Soon after, he returned with his wife Helen and bought 640 acres of land. Scott aggressively promoted the town as a place of untapped agricultural and artistic potential. The town was first known as Orangedale due to the citrus groves planted by Scott. The growing settlers later changed the name to Scottsdale in 1894.
In 1896, the community opened the first school, followed by a general store in 1897, which housed the first post office. In the early 1900s, the first resort opened its doors to guests, and the Cavaliere Blacksmiths shop was established—it is still in operation today. From then on, the construction and the real estate industry grew to make Scottsdale the stunning place its residents call home.

In January 2018, debtor Mark Stuart lost a case against the City of Scottsdale in an Arizona State Court. Afterward, he forwarded the case to the Arizona Court of Appeals. While the appeal was pending, he filed a chapter 13 bankruptcy with the bankruptcy courts. The City of Scottsdale filed a Motion to stay the proceedings in the Appeal Court after discovering Mr. Stuart filed a bankruptcy case.
Mr. Stuart’s lawyer filed a status report indicating they would move for relief, but they did not do so for months. Later, Mr. Staurt demanded the City file the Motion for relief, but they did not respond to his request. He then filed a Motion against the City with the bankruptcy court for damages and another for contempt. In the ruling, the bankruptcy court denied both Motions stating that the City’s action in filing the Motion to hold the appeal was to inform the Court of Appeals and not a wilful stay violation.
