Casa Grande Domes Are Nobody’s Homes
CASA GRANDE — Oddity seekers will find a bonanza when they come across a set of round relics squatting in the desert south of Casa Grande. At first glance, they look like abandoned UFOs. Closer inspection reveals they’re manmade, and they’re sort of spooky. They’re a series of domes. Some stand (or squat) alone; others are connected so they resemble a giant caterpillar. All are abandoned and have been severely vandalized, so there are no doors or windows left.
The domes are concrete covered with chemical foam. They were built to house an electronics circuit board factory but the project never got off the ground. Now it’s a merely gathering place for underage beer drinkers, graffiti artists and a wind that howls through the emptiness.
And, according to some, a few ghosts also roam around inside. The site is on the east side of Thornton Road, about 1.1 miles south of Interstate 8.
There are always ghosts connected with these kinds of places.
Mostly the worst ghosts are in people’s heads.
I love your comment.
I went to the domes in March of 2017, and they are blocked off. Part of the main dome (I’m guessing since it’s the largest) is almost gone. I think from the rains we had the building could not hold up to it. It’s made of insulation and light layer of cement. Trespassing signs are all over the place due to the roof collapsing. I have read the place is haunted to devil worshiping to models being photographed in the structures. Which you can see if you goggle it. Maybe at night I can see it being haunted due to the winds going through the wholes in the buildings, it’s surrounded by dirt for miles and it’s in the dark. It’s a cool place to see, I don’t recommend going in, due to the buildings falling apart. With buildings not too far off you do feel like you’re miles away.
Ghost Adventures did an exceptionally great investigation there. I don’t know how they do it..subjecting themselves to demonic spirits constantly. I guess all the comedy relief after their work is done helps..and “cleansing” rituals. They need a praying girl like me on their team..lol
