The location or Châlet Tirol originally was part of the dairy farm of a former President of Costa Rica, Alfredo Gonzalez Flores (1914-1917) He was born in Heredia on Jun. 15-1877and this property originally belonged to his father in law. He started a dairy farm, subdividing it into pasture blocks to use a new technique for those days of rotating the cows from pasture to pasture. He also planted thousands of Cypress trees as boundaries and as wind breakers.
