Heritage Center

For over 70 years, this portion of Arizona’s Sonora Desert has hosted a variety of military activities with the aim being to train and equip America’s forces to ensure they are the best in the world.This has resulted in U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground developing into one of the best multi-purpose test range facilities in the Department of Defense. The Heritage Center is proud to present a visual interpretation of the people, places, events, and objects that have comprised this intriguing history.

Although representations in our galleries are of objects from our material culture, remember that the real story is about people…people who trained here and people who worked here to research, develop, test, and evaluate the tools our nation’s military personnel used to protect our country and freedoms. Keeping those who will use these tools foremost in mind, we always remember to test for the best!
