History Talk: Rio Rico’s Most Unusual Real Estate History: Untold Stories of Rio Rico’s Dreamers and Schemers
March 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm10$
Dwight Thibodeaux, Rio Rico historian, will speak about:
Two brothers began selling goods in the streets of Baltimore that would eventually become sellers of a well-known hair tonic and the worlds’ largest land sales company in the 1960s. In a series of very successful and ground breaking land sales techniques, some legal and some less than legal, the Rosen brothers would test their land sales methods by developing several communities in Florida. These communities became the blue print for the development of the Baca Float Ranch in Santa Cruz County into the Rio Rico Project and Subdivision. Dwight Thibodeaux will provide an entertaining focus and expose of Rio Rico’s unconventional development by Gulf American Land Corporation of Arizona. You won’t believe what they did to sell land to unsuspecting buyers!
