This one square mile park was set aside in 1892 to preserve what remained of an ancestral Sonoran Desert people's community and irrigation system. The story of Casa Grande Ruins begins before recorded history. The ancestral Sonoran Desert people built a large and thriving community in the middle of a desert valley.
Once the National Preserve was created in 1892 citizens all over the United States learned about Casa Grande Ruins and the importance of protecting the park. Casa Grande Ruins National Monument no longer charges a fee to enter the monument.
There is more to enjoy than just the one large "great house." From natural features such as saguaro cactus to flickers living inside them.
