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 located in Bullhead City Community Park at 1239 Arizona Highway 95 at Bullhead City Community Park in Bullhead City, Arizona. The museum moved to its new location in the fall of 2018. The Museum 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.

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.

We do not require visitors to wear masks, but we practice social distancing at the museum. We are not presenting historical speaker programs for the public at this time.
