  • I never knew this was here. I visited it and thoroughly enjoyed walking through the grounds. It looked like it was in need of a little attention, but that doesn't surprise me in the middle of Yuma's scorching summer. I look forward to revisiting again.
  • My wife and I were married here. It was free. We just had to reserve it. Gorgeous ceremony.
