Historic Downtown Yuma ghost tour offers haunting experience

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens will hosted a ghost tour in Yuma today.

“Our main goal is for people to have fun and learn something at least whether it be about a ghost story you didn’t know about or even just a little bit about downtown Yuma because like I said we really like to stress the history part,” said Jenny Pennington the Museum Manager.

The tour was two hours long and went through Madison and Main street, giving guests a chance to better understand what has happened and continues to happen in Yuma.

“And there’s not much to do so this actually gives us you know something to do and to get to know what really is going on around here in downtown,” said Heather Cheney a guest on the tour.

However, apart from the spookiness of the tour, Pennington wants the people to learn something.

“Get a better understanding about the history of their community like one of the greatest things that I like to tell people and that I’ve heard is that Yuma is older than Jamestown so there’s a lot of history here and it’s really old and it’s got a lot of cool history,” said Pennington.

The tour for tonight is officially sold out but there will be three more tours for the rest of the year.
