See Coolidge and the Casa Grande National Monument Mar 07, 2017
Coolidge is a fast growing town of over 12,000 (up 57% since 2000) located at the intersection of Arizona Highways 87 and 287 in Pinal County in South Central Arizona, not far from Interstate 10 and between Tucson and Phoenix. Coolidge was established in 1925, incorporated in 1945, and was named after the 30th president of the United States, Calvin Coolidge. Coolidge is home to the Central Arizona College and the Casa Grande National Monument. The Casa Grande Ruins were the first historic structures in the United States to be granted protective status in 1892 (more details in a future tip). The main building and the surrounding village were built sometime in the 1300s. Country singer Waylon Jennings had ties to Coolidge.

Coolidge has a nice little historic district with a few buildings of historic and/or architectural interest. There are three buildings/areas in Coolidge listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Next time I am here I will get a photo of the Women's Club which is one of the building on the register.

Coolidge also has a nice historic museum with very limited hours. The building housing the museum is the old courthouse and jail built in 1934 and was dedicated to the first deputy sheriff in the area, Asa "Ace" Gardner, on 7 September 2005 when it became a museum. Hours are 10 AM to 2 PM Friday and Saturday. At other times try calling one of the numbers posted on the door and you may get a tour anyway.
