History Speaks

The ranch is near the ghost town of Helvetia, a historic mining site founded in 1875. The depth of western history abounds in this area of Arizona. When copper was discovered, miners came to work and make claims in the surrounding mountains with the hope of finding gold and silver.

From the historic mining sites, to the colorful stories of covered wagons travel over the mountain ranges, history really speaks throughout the area.

Mountain Overlook

Covered wagons made their way through the area climbing over the Santa Rita Mountain range to the Tucson Presidio. Traveling up the path to the Southeast, upon turning around a resident can truly grasp a sense of the views overlooking the mountain ranges.
