120 years: 1980

This year brings big changes for the Grand Junction retail landscape. Sears is the anchor store as Mesa Mall opens west of town, and consumers in a 100-mile radius flock to shop. Mesa County implements the Crime Stoppers program, and the Little Bookcliffs Wild Horse Range near De Beque is dedicated.

Grand Junction continues to boom and becomes recognized as the regional oil headquarters. St. Mary’s Air Life program takes flight and the Mesa County Genealogical Society takes root.
