Fountain Hills, AZ is a town located in Maricopa County, approximately 30 miles northeast of Phoenix. The town is a master planned community that was established by McCulloch Properties (now known as MCO Properties, Inc.) in 1970. Fountain Hills encompasses a total area of roughly 20 square miles, and is home to more than 24,000 residents.
Before it became a community, the area of present-day Fountain Hills was mostly used as a cattle ranch that was part of one of Arizona’s largest land and cattle holdings. It was eventually bought in the late 1960s by Robert McCulloch, who worked with Charles Wood, Jr., the same designer who worked on Disneyland in Anaheim.
Today, Fountain Hills is a vibrant town known for its stunning environment. Enchanting desert terrain and sweeping landscapes gives the community its picturesque quality and makes it a prime location for activities like golf, hiking, mountain biking, boating, and more.
