Before Munds Park became a hub for homesteaders, the area was home to the ancient Navajo tribe. As the east was settled, many tribal cultures made their way out west living their lives against the striking backdrop of the deserts and mountains of the region.
The Munds Family
Later, as the area that would become Northern Arizona was discovered by European and east coast homesteaders, the region transformed. William Munds, for whom Munds Park was named, made his way to the southwest in search of agricultural land, and brought with him a ranching boom.
Early Homesteading in Munds Park
Once William Munds found success living in what was then called the Mogollon Mountains, many other homesteaders followed. At that time, homesteaders could run their livestock and grow crops on up to 160 acres of land in this area, priming the region to become a ranching and farming hub. Pioneers like William Munds would spend the winters with their cattle in the Verde Valley, then travel in the warmer months back up to Munds Park to graze. The zone’s easy access to various climates made it perfect for ranchers of the time, and soon the area became a full-blown settlement.
How Munds Park Evolved
Homesteading eventually evolved into a more settled society. As technology evolved, more people – ranchers and non-ranchers alike – moved to the region to enjoy its natural beauty and welcoming climate. Today, Munds Park is still a prime place for those who enjoy nature’s beauty to call home. With its towering mountains, evergreen forests, and rolling meadows, discerning homebuilders are still attracted to the lush and lovely region today.
