ruins models to make yourself
Paper models of the Casa Grande let you compare the view today with what the Great House looked like when it was being used.


Create your own Great House Model

Build a pair of paper models (PDF) of the Casa Grande to see what the years have done to the Great House. Print the pages, color the pictures, cut along the solid edge lines, and fold on the dashed lines to make your models.
