Pythian Castle Bisbee Reviews
1904 Clock Tower in Bisbee Mar 11, 2013
This renovated 1904 Clock Tower is one of the landmarks of Bisbee. Sitting up on a hill, it is prominent and historic. It has jade green cupola and a sphere. access to it is easy as one strolls by the Brewery Gulch. When my sister visited, we strolled up and admired its architecture and the view of the town from there.
Except for the new renovation and painting, the building looks the same as it did in 1904 in a photo I saw at St. Elmo. Like many building in Bisbee, it is no longer a Clock tower castle, it was converted into an apartment building.
Its history is very interesting; the castle was built by a Swiss immigrant named Joseph Muheim for the Knights of Pythias.
