The Rio Verde Area was first settled by alfalfa and hay farmers. With the Verde River close by, farmers had access to water for their crops, which they sold at nearby Fort McDowell. Most of the land was originally owned by Page Land & Cattle and sold to a local development company in 1973 which began the transformation of this beautiful property into a master planned community. This rural area is home to many horse ranchers, custom homes, and those who enjoy living on larger lots with privacy, rolling desert topography, towering mountain views and limited HOA’s.
