Distinctive & Notable







In 1929, John and Helen Murphey created Hacienda del Sol, a desert oasis and “home-away from-home” ranch school for “girls only.” Inspired by early Spanish architecture, it showcased many details that were crafted by the Murphey’s themselves. The prestigious school’s roster boasted some of the country’s most elite families: Vanderbilt, Pillsbury, Maxwell, Westinghouse, and Campbell, to name a few. In 1948, Hacienda del Sol was converted into a guest ranch that immediately attracted the Silver Screen’s most notable stars. Leading men John Wayne, Spencer Tracy, and Clark Gable all signed their names to the hotel’s privileged guestbook. Today, simple pleasures and understated elegance are found in abundance at this classic Arizona resort.
