The unusual pink sandstone buttes in Papago Park have always caught the fancy of visitors and area residents, making the park’s history as colorful as its trademark geologic oddities. A thousand years ago, the Hohokam used the park’s most distinctive landmark, Hole-in-the-Rock, to mark solstices and equinoxes. In the nineteenth century, the federal government used the area as a temporary reservation for the Maricopa and Pima tribes. The area was designated a national monument in 1914 (Congress revoked monument status in 1932). During WWII, the park was still well outside Phoenix city limits, so the military erected a German prisoner-of-war camp on site; some of those buildings remain in use at the Phoenix Zoo.
