    Default Stone structures near Casa Grande Mountain Park, Arizona

    I was wondering if anyone knows the history behind these stone structures near Casa Grande Mountain Park, Casa Grande, Arizona (at the end of Pert Rd). I believe there was an old military site on top of the mountain in WWII timeframe???

    Those are interesting, too bad some losers felt the need to vandalize them. I look forward to hearing more information about those.

    WAG: munitions storage, or powder, or chemicals

    That structure reminds me of one that's above Roosevelt Lake off A-Cross Road. We were told later that it was used to store blasting supplies used in local mining. Here's the post I did on it. The one on this post has since been vandalized but the structure remains sound.

    ...and here's a recent photo of the same building.

    Nice find. I agree with the explosives storage.

    Matt, I take it you mean Peart Rd., and right off of I-8?
