Lakewood Ranch: Our Legacy
In 1922, the Uihlein family, founders of the Schlitz Brewing Company, acquired the property and continued to expand the agricultural operations still active today: cattle ranching, vegetable, citrus, timber, and turf farming as well as shell mining.
In 1994, development began in Lakewood Ranch and since 2005 every village built here has used products and techniques that result in healthier, more energy efficient and environmentally responsible homes. Today, Lakewood Ranch is the largest green master planned community in the U.S., and its history of successful land management and strong financial planning make it not only a sound investment but a great place to live, work and raise a family.
It is the legacy of a great American family, a lasting tribute to their success as good stewards of the land.
