What County is Bisbee?
Bisbee was founded in 1880 as a mining town. In addition to copper, gold and silver were mined. At the beginning of the 20th century, copper mining was very successful, the population rose over 9,000. In 1950 the Boom times were over, in 1974/75 the main mine, Lavender Pit, was closed. The miners moved away, the land prices collapsed and in the early 90’s artists settled here, attracted by the mild climate and good air. Numerous old houses have been renovated and the city is the center of a very lively cultural scene. The District Court in Art Nouveau style and numerous Victorian houses are worth visiting. The old copper mine, the world’s largest, can be visited. In Bisbee you can with good luck also good turquoise findem (or buy). Tombstone was founded a year earlier, 1879.
