Scottsdale was settled in the early 1890's as a result of Winfield Scott's efforts to attract new residents to the area to take advantage of its productive agricultural capacity and its health-related resort attributes. The new settlement was first recognized officially in 1896 when the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved a petition submitted by the initial Scottsdale families to create a local school district.
