Buckhorn Baths Motel, where baseball’s Cactus League is said to have been born, was sold recently for $2.15 million to The Avenue Shops.
The 15.6-acre property on Main Street and Recker Road in Mesa has been closed since 1999.
The new owners have not announced specific plans for the property yet.
The baths were a popular spot for baseball teams like the New York Giants, who started coming to the Valley in 1947. The visits reputedly led to the creation of the Cactus League.
The motel was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
