What happened to bring dozens of ancient cultures to this place called Arizona? Bill Harrison will be helping to examine the lives and dwellings of some of the best-preserved ruins in the world. Casa Grande Ruins was the very first to be granted protection by the U.S. Government in 1892 when it was designated a Cultural reserve. It became a national monument in 1918.
Montezuma Castle was nearly destroyed by careless visitors in the 1890s. It was rescued and protected as a National Monument in 1906. The ancient sites are easy to find and to visit.
However, one of the ruins near Leisure World, is so remote that few people have even heard of it. It is located at the top of the Superstition Mountains. Circlestone has baffled scientists for years. It’s a huge circle of heavy sandstone blocks that took thousands of years to create. Was it used for sacred ceremonies, recording the passage of time or perhaps to make celestial observations? Find out by attending this presentation.
The LW Photography Club will also be displaying members’ works.
