A Bit Of History
The Rocking K Ranch community will sit in the Rincon Valley. This land became part of the United States in 1853 as part of the Gadsden purchase.
In 1857, an Overland Mail Stage route was established. The stage ran west from the San Pedro River at Benson, south of the Rincon Mountains to Tucson. The route extended on to Yuma and California.
This route crossed the south and west sides of the Rincon Valley. The Southern Pacific Railroad, completed in 1880, followed essentially the same route as the stage line.
During the second half of the century land use in the Rincon Valley shifted from ranching to private residential development. Beginning in the 1960s, some of the traditional 40-acre-plus ranches were subdivided into 10 to 20-acre “ranchettes.”
By the 1980s, several ranches in the valley had been transformed into 1-acre private residential neighborhoods. Development of an extensive mixed-use, resort-oriented planned community on the Rocking K Ranch will begin in the 1990s.
