In Phoenix, we've got a bad habit of tearing down our history. So go scope out the Buckhorn Baths sign while you can. The famous Mesa curiosity, posted outside of the long-shuttered Buckhorn Mineral Baths, has been the subject of much debate and was included in a historic-trust purchase. To this day, no one can quite decide what will become of it. Make the trek to Mesa and take it in. Bask in its kitschy glory. There's something majestic about that buck deer gazing out over Mesa. It's a relic of bygone days, of Old West mystique, and former glories. Even as Mesa morphs and sprawls, there's something about that stoic buckhorn that seems to remind us of who we once were, of the promise and hope of the desert. We can't put a finger on it either, but it's worth preserving.
