The Foothills Area
The Catalina Foothills area is bounded by River Road to the south. Oracle Road to the west. Sabino Canyon Road to the east. The Santa Catalina Mountains and Coronado National Forest are to the north.
The history of the Catalina Foothills began in the early 1920s. Prior to that the Foothills area were primarily federal trust land and open range.
Early development began just north of River Road. Ten housing subdivisions were planned. These early subdivisions were to have large lots and low density residential living.
Good fortune shined down on this development in the name of Josias Joesler. Joesler was a Swiss architect who had immigrated to America. Development began in the 1930’s. Joesler designed many of the homes in the Catalina Foothills. A “Joesler” home is a sought after and treasured residence in the Foothills.
