Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens
In the heart of historic Yuma is the charming 19th-century adobe home of E. F. Sanguinetti (1867-1945). This quaint home is now an Arizona Historical Society museum chronicling Sanguinetti’s life story, as the Merchant Prince of Yuma.
New in 2016 is the featured exhibit, Ghost Town, celebrating ghost towns across Yuma County. Come, get a glimpse of life in these 19th century towns—before they became ghosts.
Visit the museum and hear stories of how Sanguinetti came to Yuma penniless at just 15. He quickly grew to become a civic-minded businessman whose various enterprises—electricity, ice house, ranching, farming, merchandizing, banking, and real estate—advanced his own well-being and that of the community he loved.
