Yuma Territorial Prison Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona USA
Arizona

The Cemetery for the Yuma Territorial Prison is next to the prison on a slight rise above the Colorado River. There were a total of 111 prisoner deaths during the time the prison was in operation. 104 persons, all prisoners, were buried at the cemetery. The Yuma Territorial Prison is located on the Colorado River near downtown Yuma, Arizona. In former times, the Prison was isolated, but today, it is next to a busy transcontinental rail line and an interstate highway. The site is currently maintained as a State Park. This photo shows the annual Gathering of the Gunfighters where actors portray old time shootouts. The first prisoners built their own cells in 1876. A total of 3,069 prisoners, including 29 women were incarcerated in this prison. Temperatures in the summer are sometimes over 120 degrees Fahrenheit and conditions in the prison were humanely administered and it was a “model” prison during its 30 years of operation. The prisoners had access to regular medical attention and a good hospital. After the prison closed, the building was used for a high school. During the 1920s and later during the Great Depression the building was used to house the homeless.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
