A Lasting Legacy

Our newly developed, master-planned community now makes homeowners like you the benefactors of this expansive property. With over 3,000 acres of wooded landscape and many undisturbed creeks and bodies of water, natural features and tranquil respites remain. And the Two Rivers legacy continues.

Find time for what really matters.

Here, families find time for each other, neighbors become friends and active lifestyles are nurtured through community recreation.

Two Rivers has conserved hallmarks of the ranch and its founder’s commitment to environmental stewardship, leaving undeveloped areas of mature hardwoods, wetlands and grasslands.

Our History

A Timeline Through the Years

Wayne Thomas offers 10 cents on the acre to buy 7,500 acres of what, at the time, most considered “tossed-away, cutover land” in the central Florida Flatwoods. “Sold,” the banker said. “You coulda had it for a nickel.”

The land passes from one generation to another, and Bob Thomas looks for ways to generate income in a way that will benefit the property. He finds what he’s looking for in forestry and science-based timber management practices.

The Thomas family continues its knack for creating opportunity through business ventures that use the land without depleting its natural resources. Hunt Club, Riding Academy and Kennel Operation are established. Several property acquisitions, namely Crystal Springs, add to the acreage and its unique attributes.

As time marches on, the Thomas family evolves and becomes increasingly innovative through crop diversification and environmental stewardships. The family added timber harvests, made improvements to soil and water, brought on a ranch foreman to manage a growing cow-calf operation and planted and maintained a Two Rivers citrus grove.

An emphasis on environmental stewardship continues with science-based land management practices. The Thomas family invests time and resources to improve habitat, food sources and natural sanctuaries for wildlife, which populate the ranch in abundance.


Active running spring water.
After a contract was signed with Nestle Waters North America in 1989, focus was directed toward the land’s natural springs and water resources. Soon, the first bottle of Zephyrhills water from the property’s Crystal Springs was capped. In the mid-1990s, Bob Thomas dedicated time and resources to restoring Two Rivers springs and surrounding woods to their natural state.

In 2004, in partnership with Nestle, the Crystal Springs Foundation was founded. A 530-acre sanctuary, the foundation features an educational center and is devoted to environmental education and dedicated to the preservation of Florida's natural environment. Each year, 50,000 students visit the center.

The Thomas family, under the leadership of Robert Thomas, continues to conserve the Two Rivers property through modern, science-based land stewardship practices. Through the 2010s and for the decades before and after, the Thomas family entertained numerous purchase offers for land development projects that failed to materialize.

In Fall 2021, Robert Thomas sold 3,400 acres to Eisenhower Property Group to build Two Rivers, what will become the Wesley Chapel areas most sought-after, master-planned community. Today the remaining Thomas family property, which the family continues to own and manage, is considered some of the most coveted land in the greater Tampa Bay region.
