9780738548258: The Wigwam Resort (Images of America: Arizona)

The evolution of an arid desert area into the verdant oasis that is the Wigwam Resort was ultimately brought about by an unlikely crop needed by an important American corporation in the early 20th century. The crop was long-staple cotton and the corporation was the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. When the U.S. Department of Agriculture discovered that Arizona’s Salt River Valley was an ideal location to domestically grow long-staple cotton, Goodyear purchased 16,000 acres in the desert west of Phoenix to cultivate the crop for their newly developed pneumatic tire. The company built a three-room lodge, originally called the “Organization House,” for the executives that came to oversee the farming operations. The location became a popular winter retreat within the company, and in 1929, Goodyear expanded the facilities and opened “The Wigwam” as a hotel. As the years progressed, amenities such as golf and fine dining were added, and the Wigwam Resort became one of the premier luxury destinations in the Southwest.

About the Author:

Lance W. Burton joined the Wigwam staff in 2005 and soon became intrigued by the resort’s storied history. With the help of the Wigwam’s vast photographic archives, the Litchfield Park Historical Society, and many of the Wigwam’s tenured associates, he has created a visual reference that spans over 80 years.
