On July 1, 1876, the first seven inmates entered the Territorial Prison at Yuma and were locked into the new cells they had built themselves.
A total of 3,069 prisoners, including 29 women, lived within these walls during the prison's thirty-three years of operation. Among the 29 women sentenced to Yuma was 16-year-old Maria Moreno, who shot her brother after he complained about the way she was dancing. There was also Pearl Hart. Pearl and her partner, Joe Boot, committed the last stagecoach robbery in Arizona. They robbed the Globe stage, and were caught very quickly. Joe Boot was sentenced to 30 years, and would later escape. Pearl Hart, after being tried twice, was given five years.
The prison was known for its strict rules; weapons, gambling, and fighting were prohibited, as was littering and failing to bathe. Those who broke the rules could be forced to wear the ball and chain and more serious offenders would be sent to the dark cell. The dark cell was basically an excavation in the hillside measuring 15' by 15', with a cage in the center. Quechen Tribal Pow Wow..
Winterhaven Ca.
Amazing colors, stories and dance....
A hop skip and jump from Yuma Az. #localgem
Off Fortuna Rd you will find Telegraph Pass..in the surrounding mountains, if you are willing to do some climbing, you will find these beautiful Petroglyph's.
Ask local hikers and they might be able to point you in the right direction....
Things like this...well you want to make people work for the find. McPhaul Bridge in Yuma, Arizona is the S.F Golden Gates twin. This suspendson bridge was built first, and is named the 'swinging bridge to nowhere' Located off Hwy 95 heading East out of town. #localgem Beautiful!! I've never seen clouds like the clouds in AZ. The Golden Gate Bridge is the McPhaul bridge's twin. This 798 ft suspension bridge, named the 'swinging bridge to nowhere' was built in 1929. Located off Hwy 95, take dirt road behind produce store. #localgem This is the Colorado River aqs it runs through Yuma, Arizona. While it is relatively small here, this is the river that cut Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, Marble Canyon and Lake Powell. Driving East towards Phoenix on interstate 8, we were mesmerized by the beautiful colors of the rising sun on the horizon. There was way more to do in Yuma than we expected. We really enjoyed our week there.
http://www.liferidingshotgun.com/2015/01/things-to-do-in-yuma-arizona.html Since being redone a few years back, Yuma's Wetlands Park has turned into a gorgeous little getaway near the historic downtown Yuma and Yuma Territorial Prison. The long, old HWY 95 coming into Yuma from Quartzsite, just past the YPG cannons. As seen from bicycle. Yuma Territorial Prison This is what Yuma looks like from a hot air balloon. We quickly shot up about 500ft in the air on the calm morning and this was our view over the territorial Prison and ocean to Ocean bridge Interesting architecture near Yuma Foothills (January 2016). Yuma historic district. The most difficult climb in Yuma Arizona. Instead of showing a gorgeous shot from the top, I wanted to share what the pass looks like from across the street! Stop in at this Pie Shoppe and gift shop for pie, ice cream or small lunch while touring Quartermaster Depot, but must pay the small admission fee to the museum before coming to eat or shop here. #Blue Don't miss climbing to top of this guard tower for views of the Colorado River and Yuma, after seeing the prison and museum. #Blue #StunningStructures Visitor center also located here, tour the grounds on the river and see corral house, kitchen, office, this storehouse in picture and museum, then stop in at the Pie Shoppe on the grounds. A whole lot of mysterious desert is what Yuma has to enchant you with. Come see old ferry river crossing then walk on riverwalk, have a picnic, or go tubing on the river. #Blue #SpringFun #TakeAHike #EndlessSummer The Ocean to Ocean Bridge is located in Yuma, Arizona and was finished in 1914 to be one of the first safe crossings across the Colorado River for 1200 miles for people coming from eastern states and essentially, trying to get to California. It connects to the Arizona side right in front of the historic Yuma Territorial Prison (yes, the one from the movie 3:10 to Yuma ) Visiting the cell blocks in a fun adventure on a non 100+ degree day in Yuma, Arizona. In the distance you can see the Ocean to Ocean Bridge, which used to be the only crossing over the once must larger Colorado River that runs through Yuma. #WhiskeySister Bare Naked Soap Company in Yuma Arizona in Main Street. Delectable smelling handmade soaps #whiskeysister This is Main Street in downtown Yuma during the Midnight at the Oasis classic car show. Definitely worth your while to stop at on your visit to Yuma. Step back in time with a little revisit into the Historic Yuma Territorial Prison, play in some prison cells, visit the dark room and see why the prisoner's call this prison See site of former Fort Yuma behind this active Catholic church, a former mission and see the church too. #Blue Tina makes the BEST cocktails #whiskeysister The oldest church in Yuma Arizona not far from Main Street Bare Naked Soap company in downtown Yuma Arizona is the best smelling shop on the street! Ask the owner for tips on which soap is better for your skin type, load up on some lip balms, doggie shampoos, or the good vibes that the shop has. #whiskeysister Load up on the real smell and feel of Yuma, with local ingredients soaps! #WhiskeySister After seeing historic downtown, have lunch outside in the courtyard and have the tortilla soup and chicken salad. Tour the Adobe home, museum and garden of the Merchant Prince of Yuma. #Blue See swing span rail bridge site along Colorado River where first railroad train entered AZ in 1877, then stroll on riverwalk or go tubing in the river. #Blue Drive over this one lane bridge with traffic light to take turns for Yuma AZ and Winterhaven CA drivers to go over the Colorado River historic crossing point with great views of the city and sites. #Blue
