Casa Grande was founded during a statewide mining boom in 1879. It was originally named "Terminus" due to a major railroad that terminated in the city, but was later renamed in honor of the nearby Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. The city was incorporated in 1915, and received its first fire station in 1916.
