On Thanksgiving Day, 1929, The Wigwam officially opened its doors as a guest ranch with enough rooms for 24 guests. A portion of the original structure, The Organization House, remains as the cornerstone of The Wigwam’s authenticity and southwestern charm.

Travel through history with our resort. One thing that grows quite well in dry, sandy Arizona soil is cotton. And for that fact we at The Wigwam are especially grateful.
The Wigwam Resort is a direct descendant of Arizona’s early cotton ranching business. When Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company discovered that long-staple cotton extended the life of their tires, the company bought 16,000 acres of land for cotton farming. In 1918, the company established the Organization House, the first building on the site, as lodging for ranch suppliers. A portion of the original structure, The Organization House, remains as the cornerstone of The Wigwam’s authenticity and southwestern charm.
