Presentation: Rio Rico’s Most Unusual Real Estate History by Dwight Thibodeaux
March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10
Two brothers began selling goods in the streets of Baltimore. They 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 exposé. 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! Call (520) 398-2252 to make your reservation. $10 fee includes all day admission to tour the Park.
