The History of McCormick Ranch

Scottsdale’s most affluent master-planned community wasn’t always an upscale destination. In fact, it was originally the R.P. Ranch: a 4,200-acre ranch raising cattle and Arabian horses. The collection of neighborhoods we know today was named after its previous owners, Anne and Fowler McCormick, who donated 100 acres of land to the City of Scottsdale in 1967.
