A historic Yuma property has gone from the 1930s to 2020 – and now, it’s ready for rent.

The Bow and Arrow Office Suites have been a labor of love for owner Matt Molenar and his wife Roxanne, who bought the property in July 2018. Since then, the Bow and Arrow has undergone an extensive renovation – literally from floor to ceiling to curb.

The property was originally built in 1935, and records show its earlier names include Swenson’s Apartment Court and Caloma Court.

In 1959, the property changed to the Bow and Arrow Motel, but in recent years, it had fallen into a state of disrepair.

Now sleek office spaces, the Bow and Arrow Office Suites were specifically redesigned with business owners in mind. Each office features a private entrance and a private restroom and is wired for state of the art internet, phone and alarm systems.

“It’s been an amazing experience renovating the Bow and Arrow, taking a tarnished, rundown property and transforming it into a gem on 4th Avenue,” Matt Molenar said. “And, in the midst of a pandemic, we’re excited to offer a clean, private, safe space in which Yuma businesses can grow and thrive!”

The Bow and Arrow Office Suites are located at 1215 S. 4th Ave.
