Tour of the historic mining town of Bisbee
in Southeastern Arizona. Bisbee was founded in 1880 and is located in what was once one of the largest copper deposits
in the world. Over eight billion pounds of copper along with millions of ounces of gold, silver, lead, and zinc
were mined from the mineral rich Mule Mountains. Around the turn of the century, Bisbee was home to 35,000 people
which made the town the largest in Arizona. Today, only a few thousand still live in the area where tourism, arts,
and crafts are the main activities.
This tour features a few of Bisbee's famous
landmarks including the Lavender Pit, Queen Mine, Copper Queen Hotel, Muheim House, and St. Patrick's Church.
