Yuma Crossing Historic Site

Yuma Crossing is a natural river crossing first used by Native Americans served significant transportation gateway on the Colorado River during the Spanish Colonial and United States westward expansion periods. The surviving buildings of the Yuma Quartermaster Depot and Arizona Territorial Prison are the key features on the Arizona side of the border; across the river, in California, stand the surviving buildings of Fort Yuma, an Army outpost that guarded the crossing from 1850 to 1885. This historic area is located on the banks of the Colorado River between Yuma's Madison Avenue and the Ocean-to-Ocean Bridge.
