Originally called Colorado City when it was founded in 1854, the town name changed to Arizona in 1858 and fell within the New Mexico Territory at the time. In 1866, the name was changed again to Yuma, then to Arizona City in 1869, and back to Yuma once again in 1873. The oldest Wells Fargo station in the Arizona Territory is located in Yuma.
