Part Of Tucson’s History
Hacienda Del Sol – A Home Away From Home Since 1929
Hacienda Del Sol is at the top of Tucson’s treasured memories list in Tucson history. This historic facility resides in the Santa Catalina foothills.
The architecture is from the Moorish styles of the 18th and 19th centuries. The Spanish Colonial structure provides a secluded escape to Tucson’s past.
The beautiful facility has had a storybook existence. Starting out as a ranch in the early 1900’s it become on of Tucson’s premier resort and dining experiences. Along the way it had many lives.
In 1929, the property served as a “girls only” college preparatory school. Attendees were from many of the wealthiest families in America. Recognizable names of the time included Vanderbilt, Kellogg, Pillsbury, Westinghouse, Spalding, Maxwell and Campbell. The Hacienda Del Sol remained a college preparatory school until the late 1940’s
The late 1940’s the facility become a guest ranch that many notable movie stars used as a hide away. Move stars the likes of Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable, John Wayne and Howard Hughes were there.
After being in the spot light for many years, the Hacienda Del Sol faded from notoriety. It languished in relative obscurity until the mid 1990’s. A group of Thessalonians purchased the property and worked to bring it back to its rightful place in Tucson history.
Renovations were made and in 1997, “The Grill” was added to the facility. The Hacienda Del Sol is not only back on the map, it is at the top of the list. Its one of a kind setting, impeccable facilities and the dining experience of The Grill are hard to find anywhere.
