Haunted Casa Grande Domes being demolished
Our hearts always hurt when we hear of the demolition or destruction of a haunted landmark. While we never had the opportunity to investigate this notorious (and strange) Arizona haunt, it’s still a bummer to ear that it’s on its way out.
CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) — County officials have ordered the demolition of dilapidated dome-like structures in Casa Grande that have attracted attention over the years, including being featured on a television show called “Ghost Adventures.”
The Pinal County Board of Supervisors affirmed Wednesday after hearing officer’s findings that the structures known as the Casa Grande Domes are a safety hazard and must be demolished.
Dan Peer, the manager of Simplicity Communications and the domes, appealed to the supervisors to allow the domes to stand and said the onus to show the domes are unsafe was on the county. Peer asked the county to hire a structural engineer to determine whether the concrete structures were a danger, the Casa Grande Dispatch reported.
