Museum Reopens October 18, 2016
Preparations are underway for the October 18, 2016 unveiling of the new featured exhibit: SECRETS of Victorian Yuma. See you in October!
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.
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.
New in 2016-2017 is the featured exhibit, SECRETS of Victorian Yuma. Draw back the curtain for a revealing glimpse of the later Victorian years as they unfolded in Yuma. Hear stories hushed overtime to a low whisper. Victorian years in Yuma were far more than floral decor and polite conversation. Thus, the Secrets.
Enjoy all the Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens has to offer:
- Historic and Ghost Tours
- Weddings and Hosted Events
- Tea Parties in Sanguinetti’s Secret Gardens
- Jack Mellon Mercantile – Museum Gift Shop
