This old archaeological site is located on the outskirts of Globe and dates to 1200 AD. Once the expansive homes of the Salado people (who may have been a subset group of the Hohokam), the ruins are among the largest found in the state. The original site had approximately 400 rooms, although a portion of those were bulldozed in the mid-1900s for construction projects. Today, you can visit to see partially-restored rooms and learn more about some of the ancient people who lived here.

This was an inexpensive dip into local pre-history. There's a museum on site full of archeological findings, a short introductory video, friendly staff, tea or coffee, and the ruins themselves. They are pet-friendly with room for RV parking nearby assuming there are no ball games going on.
