Yuma County School Project

The Wray Museum with the support of the East Yuma County Historical Society has been working with community members and organizations in an effort to locate and gather information on schools throughout Yuma County. Area residents have been graciously providing locations, photos, and stories of schools. 


  • To gather and compile information of all the schools in Yuma County to preserve for future generations.


  • Identify all of the schools, their locations, and years in service.
  • Compile a list of all students and teachers for each school.
  • Collect stories, photographs, memorabilia, and other documentations regarding school activities.

End Results
