Bullhead City in Mohave County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Commercial Steamship Transportation and Bullhead Community Park
Bull's Head Rock, from which Bullhead City derived its name, was located upstream from this point and since 1953, has been covered by the waters of Davis Dam. It was once used as a navigation marker and was located at a point where the Mohave Indians forded the river, as it was free of quicksand.
In this bicentennial year, 1976, the citizens of the Bullhead area dedicate this landmark to the Bullhead Community Park in commemoration to the peoples of yesterday.
Erected 1976 by Citizens of Bullhead City.
