Bisbee was founded in the 1800's (1880 to be exact), interesting the name of the city belongs go a Judge named DeWitt Bisbee. Bisbee is a historical mining town popular for Copper mining. The mine was called the Old West mining Camp (now known as the Queen Mine): nolonger an active mine, the town of Bisbee uses it commercially as a tourist attraction.
The town's Main street plays host to most of the business - from restaurants to pubs, to hotels, art galaries, the Bisbee Museum, Wall of peace, the 1000 stair way, to mention but a few.
I was impressed by the art: as an art collector I get drawn to any place that has pieces I can appreciate. It looks more like the town has more artists and more of an older community of people. The architecture is amazing, we saw amazing historic buildings that were formerly ravaged by fire favorably restored. Incredible Victorian and European-style homes perched miraculously on the hillside and the sun beautifully setting hit the hillsides as if to commerorate an era long gone by.
For the Queen mine tour, it is advisable to make reservations prior. Here is a contact number for those who might visit Bisbee - 1 866-432-2071 (toll free within the USA), or book online by going to www.queenminetour.com
