This Quartermaster Depot closed right after the Civil War due to trains being able to carry supplies across the country and over the bridges of the Colorado River.
The city of Yuma has a canal that was built underneath the Colorado River.
And, the Museum has the history also of the dams that were build in the area.
In the Quartermaster's home there was many period pieces.
My kiddos got a kick out of the fact that most of the pieces are things that I decorate with in our home. - Old Coffee Grinder, Butter Turners, clay crock pots, Caste Iron posts.
I just thought this piano in the parlor was interesting.
The buildings had beautiful windows.
I am such a sun girl coming through my house.
They had the land sprinkled with Cacti. Some of them were the endangered cacti species.The girls thought this Cactus was pretty due to it being purple.
They had a big barn of wagons.
This one is a "dump" wagon.
They dump the trash from the bottom.
Ending our tour with a little rest before we headed out at the train depot.
