Learn about the history of Yuma, Arizona, at this historic park.

The Colorado River State Historic Park is an area where wagons, the military, stagecoaches, the railroad, and eventually cars crossed the Colorado River during the 1800s. Once an army depot, the restored buildings houses a museum depicting the military period of Yuma and other aspects of the town's daily life. The museum also documents the historical landscape when Yuma was the narrowest part of the Colorado River. Visitors will also learn about irrigation and the early settlers here.

The visitor center has knowledgeable staff and attendants, plus flyers to help you know where to go in Yuma and other Arizona cities. Be sure to stop in to see one of the train cars from the early 1900s, and enjoy the walking trail throughout the park. Visitors can also rent bikes, visit the gift shop, and eat some pie and other baked goods at the bakery. Add the Colorado River State Historic Park to your itinerary the next time you're in Yuma, Arizona.
