The community of San Pablo is clearly visible at the foot of the Tempe Butte in 1940. Mexican families began selling their properties to ASU as early as 1954, and continued doing so until at least 1966 or 1967. Today, the dormitories along University from Rural Road west to Mill Avenue comprise some of this property.
