Yuma Territorial Prison/Arizona State ParkYuma, AZ
Between 1876 and 1909, this penitentiary housed many of Arizona's most dangerous criminals. Farmed in literature, movies, and television, the remains of the prison is now an Arizona State Park. the cells, main gate, and guard tower have endured as grim reminders of frontier justice. Museum exhibits document the story of the prison. Cells are authentically furnished, and visitors may climb the guard tower to view the river and surrounding area. Ranger-guided tours supplement museum exhibits depicting prison life.
