Among the beautiful mansions and picturesque homes sprawled across Paradise Valley remain bits and pieces of the town’s unique, humble beginnings — which are akin to an endangered species as real estate endeavors chips away at historic properties.
The charm, beauty and pristine community that is Paradise Valley is comprised of some of man’s — and nature’s — most exquisite homebuilding handiwork. But, as lot after lot is redeveloped, made better from what was there before, is the history of the Town of Paradise Valley being under valued?
Places such as the Hermosa Inn, SmokeTree Resort and the occasional home date back to the town’s 1961 incorporation or before.
