Lake Powell Property in Greenehaven Arizona - views with history

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Rankin Realty at Lake Powell, LLC

Greeenehaven Arizona has changed a lot in the last few years. This small town has a rich history in our area and was named after Art Greene. I found a great site at ASU Libraries with photos and all about Art Greene - You can check it out

Colorado River and Art Greene photos and history

Greenehaven is the only town with home ownership almost on the shores of Lake Powell. Several years ago a developer purchased a large portion of Greenehaven and today has several spec homes for sale as well as numerous lots. There are also private owners selling lots and homes as well.

As of May 3, 2008 in Greenehaven there are

  • 146 lots for sale
  • Price range $75,000 to $235,000
  • Size range .23 acres to 1.05 acres

Lake Powell is currently raising 4 inches a day and by the first of July should see a 50 foot total vertical increase in water. Try to imagine what is in these photos taken today with 50 additional vertial feet of water.....

Virginia - This area was pretty well teaming with life. There was no lake but the Colorado River was nearby. The bay in the photo is Wahweap Bay. Wahweap means "bitter water". The Colorado, before the dams, was either raging in the spring with the snow melt, or 90 degrees and a wall of moving mud in the late summer, early fall. The native americans built some villages on the shores of tributaries of the Colorado, but not on the river itself. 

Wahweap only had water flowing in it during spring run off, or during the monsoon season in the summer. The water would stagnate in pools and become unsafe to use. It is thought they named it Wahweap as a warning to their own children and to other's passing through of the danger of the stagnant water.

The Mormon Pioneers got to this area about the same time as John Wesley Powell, the 1860's. I plan on doing posts on Lee's Ferry - one heck of a story there with the graveyard and the only crossing of the Colorado for hundreds of miles. It's also one of my favorite places to hang out today.

Art Greene was one of the next really influential people in the area leading tours not only down the Colorado river, but opening a trading post and leading folks to Rainbow Bridge. 

The dam was started in 1956 and finished in 1966 and Waweap creek filled up and became Wahweap Bay!

Heather - You could cut and paste your own comment - it would make a great post!  I saw a program recently about what the earth would be like if we hadn't built dams and such.  The section on Hoover dam was amazing, the computers painted a whole different story of 'what if'.

Do you hike out there or just sit and imagine who was there before you - that is what I like to do around the Indian Reservation if I go to St George the back way, if I have time to stop for awhile.
