Pinal Ways Editor Rofida Khairalla has the #backstory on the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. We visited the ruins not long ago and talked to Dave Carney, manager of interpretation and education, at the park to discuss the site's historical significance as well as what guests can expect to see when they visit the park.

Rofida, excellent information shared with your video! Without telling my age, I have a picture of my cousins, siblings and I playing in the big house long before it's attraction setting in the barren desert. The timeframe was prior to the "protective environment of today". Thank you for your time and dedication!
