Casa Grande, a mining town in Arizona, began mostly as a tent city. The first meeting place of the church of Christ in the city was also a tent. The city began with one street-Main Street-across from the railroad tracks. You will delight to read about when each street we use today opened up, when each building we visit today was built, and when various laws were enacted, such as registering whether or not a citizen had a fan, not bringing guns to town, and driving down only one side of the street.Within these pages, you will find progress the city made each of its first thirty-five years as well as congregational accomplishments for each of its first thirty years. Cameos of many families who came here show the religious backgrounds in the Great Restoration Movement and day-to-day life living in the desert.The city of Casa Grand began in 1912 because of silver and gold deposits, along with other minerals. The church of Christ began in 1917, five years later, because of the city. Twenty years after the church of Christ began, it had 200 members. Both were here to stay.
