Pueblo Grande Ruin, a National Historic
Landmark, is a large prehistoric Hohokam Indian village site
that was continuously occupied between 100 and 1450 A.D. Heavily
influenced by contacts with Mexico, the Hohokam built a Central
American style ball court and a large masonry platform mound
surrounded by caliche-brick dwellings between 1150 and 1450 A.D.
The mound covers 3.3 acres and stands 20 feet high. The Pueblo
Grande Museum contains exhibits on the Hohokam people.
