A Bit Of History
Canyon Ranch was founded by Mel and Enid Zuckerman and Jerry Cohen in 1979 in Tucson, Arizona.
Mel Zuckerman told the background of the name in an interview with the Arizona Daily Star on June 24, 2014.
Zuckerman left New Jersey with his family in 1958, and traveled west to find a new home. After 5 weeks of travel Zuckerman ended up in Tucson, Arizona.
One of the first places he visited was Sabino Canyon.
He decided he wanted to live near the natural beauty in the area.They bought a home and settled down.
In 1978, he and his wife Enid decided to open a health resort. To do that, they purchased the 42-acre Double U Dude Ranch, near Sabino Canyon.
The old ranch buildings were in bad shape. But rather than tearing them down, they decided to rebuild them. They felt rebuilding would not damage the energy of the place and scare away the wildlife.
Mel and Enid named the new resort Canyon Ranch. The name derived from Sabino Canyon and the Double U Dude Ranch.
