Books about Del E. Webb and the Sun City History and Community

This is a great time of year to be thinking about gift giving! We have something for everyone! Shop for family, friends or treat yourself. We’re hoping to see many of you sporting our hats and visors around town and using our other souvenirs.

This is also a great way to help support the Del Webb Sun Cities Museum. Raising this money is our ongoing fundraising effort to preserve and promote the sister cities of Sun City, Sun City West and the name of Del E. Webb.

We thank you in advance for your purchases!

  • Jubilee records the events which transformed the 10,000-acre Marinette cotton plantation into a retirement community that set a new standard for the world. Experts said a community solely for the elderly was destined to fail, but Del Webb and the Webb Corporation proved them wrong. Opened on January 1, 1960, 237 homes were sold the first weekend, and Sun City was completed in less than 20 years with a final population of nearly 40,000 adults. Shipping costs will be calculated and added to all orders not picked up at the museum.
