Mesa Grande Ruins, in Mesa, Arizonamarker, preserves a group of Hohokam structures constructed during the classical period. The ruins are believed to date to about 1300 and were a product of the Hohokam civilization that inhabited the Salt River Valley and constructed an extensive system of water canals before vanishing for mysterious reasons. It is one of only two remaining Hohokam mounds remaining in the metro Phoenixmarker area, the other being the Pueblo Grande Museum and Cultural Parkmarker.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

At the present time, the ruin is not open to the public but can be seen through the fence. The Arizona Museum of Natural Historymarker is currently undertaking archaeological studies at the site, and is working on opening it to the public. The mound remains remarkably intact.
