Society History

The Colorado River Historical Society (CRHS) began operating a museum in the former Saint Mary Margaret Catholic Church building at Davis Camp in 1991 under a contract with Mohave County. The CRHS Museum is now located at 1239 Arizona Highway 95 (in the Community Park) Bullhead City, Arizona. The museum moved to its new location in the fall of 2018 and offers a wide variety of historical displays, including photographs, documents, and other memorabilia. The Colorado River Historical Society, Incorporated is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code.

Museum Operations

The CRHS Museum is operated by a staff of dedicated volunteers and is typically open between October and May on Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, and with special hours during the Summer months. For groups and school tours or access for research, please contact the museum by calling or send us a message via email. We do not have set entrance fees; but donations are appreciated.
