Created as a stop on the Southern Pacific Railroad's Sunset Route, it is named for its supposed resemblance to an Arabian desert. Originally east of Yuma, it now lays inside the larger city limits of that city, at the intersection of Arizona State Route 195, which is named Araby Road, and the railroad, just adjacent to the intersection with Interstate 8.
