In 1911, the Spur family began farming the area. In 1950, the Youngstown Retirement community was started nearby. In 1956 the Spur Family developed cattle feedlots to supplement their operation. In 1959, Webb began the Sun City residential development and a year later Spur industries purchased land to rebuild and expand their feedlot. In 1960, Webb began offering homes over 10 miles from the feedlot, but over time the lots offered were as little as 500 feet from the feedlot. According to Webb, 1300 lots in his development were unusable due to the proximity to the feedlot, and thereafter Webb brought this suit.
