55+ Active Lifestyle Communities

Farnsworth has been a trusted name in Mesa, Arizona for over 60 years.  We were the pioneers of retirement communities in Mesa and the East Valley.  Our first community designed to meet the needs of active adults began when Joseph A. Farnsworth and his son, Ross, broke ground for their first development.  Dreamland Villa started in 1958 with a parcel of 200 acres of land near the corner of Main and Higley. The grand opening was celebrated in January of 1959, a full year prior to the opening of the Sun City by Del Webb.

The Farnsworths began building their dream on borrowed time from their regular jobs, working nights and weekends to build the homes. To meet the need for supplying water in the desert, Ross personally dug the water line trenches that brought water from a well and storage tank.

Their pioneering vision set a standard for age-controlled community living, as Farnsworth led the way for the growth of retirement communities in the Valley of the Sun.  Needed amenities and services were conveniently located within each community where residents participated in community centered activities, events.

Dreamland Villa

Dreamland Villa grew to become a retirement community made up of nineteen sections and over five thousand individuals as building continued through 1978. When Dreamland Villa was built, it was located in an unincorporated area of Maricopa County, a considerable distance from the City of Mesa borders.
