Almost six decades ago, one of Arizona’s first licensed contractors, J.W. Hancock, founded a home building business with his wife, Maggi. J.W. Hancock Enterprises specialized in semi-custom homes, opposed to tract homes common in the area in the 1960s.
The couple renamed their firm after their son Mark saw the 1967 musical Camelot, in which a character states, “in short, there’s simply not a more congenial spot for happily ever aftering than here in Camelot.” Mark remembered the line and went home to ask his mom if they could call the company Camelot.
