Enter the Sanguinetti House Museum though the ever-so-charming Jack Mellon Mercantile!

Wander through three rooms filled to the brim with antiques, one-of-a-kind treasures, a wide array of jewelry and items reminiscent of a bygone era, and one of the finest collections of books on Yuma history.

Named after riverboat captain Jack Mellon, who built the then adobe house in 1873, the Jack Mellon Mercantile, like the Sanguinetti House Museum, is a historical landmark in downtown Yuma.

Proceeds from the Jack Mellon Mercantile help fund Yuma County Historical Society efforts to improve the Sanguinetti House Museum and surrounding gardens.
