History & History Related Items

Yuma history:

Father Eusebio Francisco Kino first saw the Yuma Crossing as a way to enter California. It was a century later when another priest, Father Francisco Garces, rediscovered the crossing in his own search for a route by land to California. Two missions were established here in 1779 by Father Garces. During the last major uprising by the Yuma Indians, Father Garces and all the settlers were killed in a raid. Again the crossing faded away. It wasn't until Kit Carson, the famous cowboy, discovered it once again 50 years later that the crossing became a permanent settlement during the time of the California Gold Rush in the late 1840's.
