Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park [AZ]
The Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park preserves Arizona Territory's first prison, in use between 1876 and 1909. Visitors can see the solitary chamber and original strap iron holding cells. The site presents information on the prison itself, the prison lifestyle, and a selection of the 3,069 prisoners to have been housed there. The most common crime represented within the prison body was grand larceny. The site offered prisoners a library, an electrically powered ventilation system, and electric lighting.
The site offers exhibits, interpretive signs, junior ranger activities, and a picnic area.
