I'd say she wins the trophy!

WOW.The third home. I agree with Bill that she definitly wins the trophy.

I was just curious if anyone knows how to find the first recorded home owner
in TV?

Aww, I'd love to meet her. I wonder just how much that free garbage pick-up and cable has been worth now after all of these years. Our next door neighbor was telling us about the days before the Spanish Springs Town Square was built. Everyone met in a blue and white tent somewhere over near the Post Office, Mexican restaurant and the crematory. Gosh, I love this place more and more everyday.

My uncle and aunt used to rent in TV in the early 80's and bought in Country Club Hills in about '85. He recently told me that the town center was as described above and that the land where La Plaza Grande and Spanish Springs is located was just farm land at that time. They are both in their early 80's now so in 1980 they were about 50.

ANOTHER person who deserves a BIG Trophy, IMHO....would be................... H. Gary Morse who arrived in 1983.... ( to help his dad--Harold Schwartz )...... and was the mastermind of this magnificent place we call The Villages.. And ..ALSO... to his children ( Mark Morse, Tracy Mathews and Jennifer Parr ) who now are the "movers and shakers" providing us with this place we call PARADISE. AND, let's prepare another, for the upcoming Fourth-generation ....which I hope will continue the family tradition.... THANK YOU to the entire MORSE family... ...for the VISION....Dedication .. and the hard work in providing the "FINEST" retirement community in the entire WORLD.
