Over 100 years of History - Power Ranch Real Estate
Would you believe that the Power Ranch real estate has been around for more than 100 years? This community has a rich history reaching back to 1892, when James Oliver Power settled in Lehi, a community new present-day Gilbert. In the early 1900’s, James and his wife, Sarah, began their 2,000-acre Power Ranch homestead living in a tiny frame bungalow. They raised their 13 kids in their five-room adobe home (can you imagine the smell?). During this time, cotton was THE industry to be in. According to the community’s website, “James Power was known throughout the area as one of the best producers of pima cotton, named after Pima County, Arizona. When the Depression hit in 1929, the banks closed and everyone was broke. Power Ranches couldn’t sell its cotton, so it diversified into vegetables, all kinds, and hired a Japanese supervisor and Filipino crew from California. Nevertheless, the ranch operation survived and was prospering again by 1934”.
