Caida and the Old Pueblo -
Both Venerable and Still Growing

In 2007, Flecha Caida Ranch Estates will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary.
In thinking about how the Flechas represent so much that is good about
living in Pima County, I thought back to how civilization in the County
and in Tucson developed. History is right at our feet, so to speak,
as is illustrated in the following footrace through time, gleaned
years of studying old court and other county records, reading some
of the very good books about Tucson and visiting the Historical
other keepers of the past that is so much a part of our lives today.
I have always believed that, while Phoenix has followed the Los
Tucson has more in common with preservationist aspects of San Francisco.
In fact, our surviving relics of man's contribution to the area rival
the more celebrated landmarks of New England in age. We may,
in fact, have
an even longer living history. If you are not a native, think back
to what attracted you to Tucson in the first place - and what
made you stay. Perhaps
it was because you, like many of us, sensed that the people have cared
about their community and took care to preserve the best of it.
