Sun City's history began January 1, 1960, at the intersection of 107th Avenue and Oakmont Drive. It was on that day that the Del E Webb Corporation unveiled the world's first active-adult resort retirement community. Sun City's history can still be found at the intersection of 107th Avenue and Oakmont Drive. Next to the Oakmont Recreation Center sits the Del Webb Sun Cities Museum and the headquarters of the Sun Cities Area Historical Society. The museum occupies one of the first five model homes in Sun City.
