A Bit of History

The development of the area started in the early 1920s. Prior to that, the area from the Westin La Paloma to the Lodge at Ventana Canyon was federal trust land and open range. As was most of Pima County at that time.

In the 1930s, the first ten housing developments in this area of Tucson broke ground north of River Road.

It was during this time that fortune shined on a Swiss architect named, Josias Joesler. Joesler designed many of the homes in the area.

These homes stood out from one another due to a distinctive style and large lots. Joesler created a community, rather than developing a city.

Today, the Catalina Foothills is home to many of Tucson’s luxurious resorts. Lowes Ventana Canyon Resort, The Lodge at Ventana Canyon, and the Westin La Paloma are notable. The Hacienda Del Sol resort is also located in the Foothills.

Golf courses abound along with these Tucson resorts. The Ventana Canyon Golf Club, Skyline Country Club and the La Paloma Country Club are all in the Foothills.

The world-famous Canyon Ranch also calls the Catalina Foothills home.

Around 2005, La Encantada was opened. La Encantada brings upscale retail shopping to the malls in the Tucson metro area. It is located at the northwest corner of Skyline Road and Campbell Avenue.

Today, the Catalina Foothills area has a population of over 50,000. The majority of the subdivisions are low-density combined with a strong suburban character.

Catalina Foothills School District

The Catalina Foothills School District was established in Tucson about this same time. The first School District building was near East River Road and North Campbell Avenue. That building remains and is CFSD’s administration facility.

The Catalina Foothills High School is just south of Skyline Drive and west of Swan Road. It is one of the top schools in the Tucson metro area.
