History & History Related Items

Rio Rico means Rich River. The community, itself, began in 1969 and has grown as the area has expanded. Its beginnings go back to the Baca Float, a tract of around 100,000 acres granted to the heirs of Luisa Maria Baca by the US Congress because of an unclear grant from the Spanish government many years before.
