The Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Park is the site of the former US Army Supply depot from 1864 to 1883. The Depot stored supplies for all the forts in the Arizona territory. When the Southern Pacific Railway (think "Hell on Wheels") reached Yuma in 1877 it reduced the importance of the Depot, in that the railroad could get these supplies to the territory, and didn't need the Depot as a source of storing the goods. Sadly, within six years the Depot would close, never to be re-opened.
