Lone Mountain is a historic neighborhood in Phoenix, Arizona. It is located in the central part of the city and is bordered by Central Avenue to the north, 7th Street to the south, Buckeye Road to the west and Roosevelt Street to the east. The area was named after Lone Mountain, which was a prominent landmark in Phoenix until it was leveled during an urban renewal project in 1969.
The area of Lone Mountain has been inhabited for thousands of years by Native Americans. The first European settlers arrived here in 1867, and built farms around the mountain which were used for growing cotton and raising cattle. In 1887, a group of businessmen formed an irrigation company called Salt River Valley Water Users’ Association (SRVWUA) and started construction on canals that would provide water for farming purposes from Salt River.
By 1890, they had completed a canal that provided water from SRP's Roosevelt Dam all the way down to Phoenix. This allowed farmers to start planting crops such as alfalfa, cotton and citrus fruits including lemons and oranges along with vegetables such as beans, corn and tomatoes. Today there are still many farms in this area including some very large ones operated by companies like Dole Food Company Inc., Chiquita Brands International Inc., Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc., Tanimura & Antle Fresh Foods Inc., Taylor Farms-Arizonia LLC etc.
A 'gated community' with beautiful single-family homes, and open desert land make this a very desirable neighborhood. Community parks, hiking trails, and playgrounds are aplenty for adults and children.
