Yuma, Arizona

Founding fathers of Yuma immediately saw the natural crossing of the Colorado River as an ideal spot for a city, as the Colorado River narrows to slightly under 1,000 feet wide in one small point.

LDS History

As early as 1856 the newly formed Republican Party linked slavery and polygamy as the “twin relics of barbarism,” and supported the passage of the Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act in 1862. In the mid-1880’s, twelve prominent, Mormon leaders were convicted under this latest statute and nine were imprisoned at the Yuma Territorial Prison. This era in the history of the Yuma Territorial Prison was short-lived. By 1890, the LDS Church issued the Manifesto, which banned plural marriage.
