“explore the mystery and complexity of a 650 year old landmark”
For More Than 650 Years the Casa Grande Has Stood as a Meeting Place and Landmark. Explore the mystery and complexity of an extended network of communities that rivals today's cities. An Ancient Sonoran Desert People's farming community and "Great House" are preserved at Casa Grande Ruins. Whether the Casa Grande was a gathering place for the Desert People or simply a waypoint marker in an extensive system of canals and trading partners is but part of the mystique of the Ruins.
Great piece of history, the guides are volunteers, and our guide kept contradicting himself. He didn't seem to know much and trying to pull info out of the air. They need a lesson from the Mexicans on presentation. But you don't need to take the guided tour, you can watch the short video and do a self guided tour.
Great place to learn! Kids did Junior Ranger workbook and got badges. Super interesting place. Price is steep. Would always recommend the Interagency Annual Pass from nps.gov to cover any National Parks/Monument entrances. But overall, great place.
Loved it. So beautiful, informative, historical and peaceful.
