Search Ehrenberg Arizona

Ehrenberg is located in La Paz County between Quartzsite and the California state line just off I-10 at exit 1 on Highway 95.

Ehrenberg, a desert community alongside the Colorado River, has a colorful history. It was founded in 1863 as Mineral City, at the site of William and Isaac Bradshaw's ferry landing. In the 1870s, when the Colorado River served as a main source of transportation to the interior of the Arizona territory, Ehrenberg became a major port.

The town was renamed Ehrenberg after Herman Ehrenberg, a surveyor and mining engineer, who was murdered in Dos Palmas, California, in 1866.

The unincorporated community has a Mohave Desert setting 200 feet above sea level. Nearby mountains provide topographic relief. Ehrenberg is on Interstate 10, across the Colorado River from Blythe. Phoenix is 142 miles east.
