LITCHFIELD PARK, ARIZONA PROPERTY EST. 1929 In 1916, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company purchased 16,000 acres of land for growing cotton, which had proven beneficial in extending the life of rubber tires. In 1918, the company’s executives began staying at the property and it became such a popular meeting place that the company’s president, Paul Litchfield, agreed to convert it into a winter retreat. Amid much fanfare, The Wigwam opened on Thanksgiving Day in 1929. Today, this four-diamond property spans 400+ lushly landscaped acres that include an Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, fitness center, five restaurants and bars, four swimming pools, first-class conference facilities, and three signature 18-hole golf courses, including two historic Robert Trent Jones, Sr.-designed courses. The woodwork patterns seen on the doors and windows throughout the resort were designed as a tribute to match the tread marks of the original Goodyear tires.
