Default Mohawk, Arizona

I am a writer researching Mohawk, Arizona (about 50 miles east of Yuma).
I would welcome contact with anyone who has information about the Mohawk Lodge, service station, post office, stage stop, etc. People, stories, what happened after I-8 bypassed it--anything. Thanks.

Default Mohawk, Arizona

Its been gone for a long time. There is a small museum in Wellton that probably has info on it, but I do not have the phone number. Call Yuma County Historical Society 928.782.1841 and ask for Carol Brooks. She may have researched it in the past few years.

Post Mohawk area, arizona

Hi,
Wellton Pioneer Museum

10402 Fresno St
Wellton, AZ 85356

[RIGHT][/RIGHT]

[LEFT]Open Tuesdays 10 AM to Noon
[/LEFT]

There is no phone for this museum, but Vince Breit is the man who runs it. He knows more about the surrounding area of wellton-mohawk than anyone else. He is also writing a book about the area. He can be found in the Wellton Library, browsing books and doing research.
I hope this helps.

That's for sure. I almost got lost there in 110 degree heat because I got off the interstate. You just see a bunch fields there and that is pretty much it. I can't believe anyone actually lives there.

Perhaps this book would help if you can find some info. Every entire road, highway, freeway, etc has little stops, towns & cities and a history behind it. Marshall Trimble's Book, "The Roadside History of Arizona", would be a good start and here's a link to Marshall's website:

A Roadside History of Arizona

He's written alot for "Arizona Highways"

Cheers

I have been looking into my Uncle's plane crash which occured on Nov 12 1941 very near (just east) of The Mohawk Lodge. The owner at the time witnessed the crash and wrote my grandparents, with details on Jan 16, 1942. His name is Edward S Waterman. He was in the Post Office as it happened at 6:15 PM. My uncle was Ivan J. May and he was the pilot of The Douglas Boston III British AL-882. Would appreciate any information at rrouse12@live.com
