Historic Sahuaro Ranch

category : Museums
Historic Sahuaro Ranch Enjoy the 1885 homestead that is one of the oldest and best-preserved examples of early ranches in the Salt River Valley. Sahauro Ranch was acclaimed throughout its hundred-year history for its beauty and size, celebrated for its agricultural ingenuity, praised for its architectural uniqueness, and proclaimed the "Showplace of the Valley."

Today, 80 acres of this turn-of-the-century Glendale homestead have been converted into a magnificent park. While an active recreation area has been carved from 60 acres of the ranch's orchards, the highlight for visitors is the 20-acre historic park site which has been created from the original ranch complex. The idyllic setting invites you to step back in time as you stroll through this unique "ranch museum" whose artifacts are the many buildings, orchids, landscaping and wildlife within those boundaries.

With its original buildings and grounds preserved by the City of Glendale, beautiful Sahuaro Ranch has been restored to its former prominence as the "Showplace of the Valley."
