dventures abound in Arizona’s southernmost mile-high town and, depending on what you are looking for, Old Bisbee, tucked away in the Mule Mountains, can deliver. Love coffee? It’s brewing. You can even have a full-flavored cup while sitting in a bathtub at, of course, the Bathtub Coffee shop on Subway Street, or join the coffee regulars at Bisbee Coffee Co. on Main Street and enjoy a morning or afternoon cup of specialty roast coffees and espressos. Bisbee Coffee offers brands for sale, as does Old Bisbee Roasters, on Naco Road. They generally sell at a table in “Peddler’s Alley,” next to Poco. For a change of beverage, try Nam Sen Teahouse on upper Main Street. They have lovely teas: loose, bagged, and brewed, along with “sweets and treats.” Love food? Bisbee’s a hot spot with unique menus covering the breadth of healthy choices, or sometimes not. Go gourmet at Café Roka. Grab a specialty burger at The Table. Get some authentic Mexican dishes at Contessa’s Cantina on Main Street or Santiago’s on Brewery Gulch.

Go Vietnamese at Thuy’s Noodle Shop in their new digs on Tombstone Canyon across from the Iron Man. Is pizza on your list? Check out Screaming Banshee Pizza on Tombstone Canyon and The Stock Exchange in Brewery Gulch. For a hearty breakfast or lunch, visit The Bisbee Breakfast Club on Erie Street. Love shopping? Fashionistas abound in Old Bisbee, like Pan Terra Gallery on Main Street, where you can build your trousseau with wearable art from unique fashion designers. Redbone, on Subway, lets your Bohemian or Western side come out with vintage fashions. Classic Rock Couture on Main Street lets the wild child loose. Also on Subway, for kooky clothes, accessories, and tchotkes, try Black Sheep and Tumbleweed Gypsy. Looking for specialty gifts or one of a kind art for walls or shelves? Just take a walk down Main Street and Subway Street and browse through the uncommon treasures at any of the shops like Merc on Main, Bisbee Soap and Sundry, Finders Keepers, Acacia Art and Antiques, the art galleries and a plethora of jewelry stores. Artemizia Gallery, closed until April 15, has high end art prints in the middle of Main Street, and a darling gift shop just past Subway. High Desert Café on Tombstone Canyon offers both healthy food and handmade gifts which are not found anywhere else. In Warren, try the new Jo’s Consignment at 202 Bisbee Road. Lots of goodies you won’t see elsewhere. From earrings to sofas, you’ll find almost a myriad of classy items at LOOK Gallery, 38 Main St. Need something to read? Try Meridian Books on Subway Street’s lower level. They carry new and used books for kids and adults on a wide variety of subjects, including a lot of very quirky genres. For cool new and pre-owned items, check out Gimme Shelter on Main across from Subway. They have pet supplies, china, linens, clothing, jewelry, art, and who knows what. All proceeds go to the Bisbee Animal Shelter. No trip to Bisbee is complete without a stop into

the infamous Killer Bee Guy’s Shop, on Main Street, and a taste of honey provided by, of course, killer bees, and honey mustard blends concocted by Reed Booth and friends. Check out Bisbee Olive Oil on Brewery Avenue for a variety of olive oil blends and vinegars, as well as seasonings and spices. New on Main Street is Bisbee Oil & Vinegar with their own array of, of course, oils and vinegars. Old Bisbee has diverse lodging options from the historic Copper Queen Hotel to quaint bed and breakfast rooms scattered about the main drag and up in the hills, like the Sleepy Dog Guest House. The Oliver House does not want to be known for ghosts anymore, but they have a dynamite inexpensive breakfast, takeout only as of now. A bit of nostalgia and originality can be found at the Schoolhouse Inn. The hotel IS still alive, but closed through March 26. In Warren, the historic Calumet and Arizona Guest House offers quaint quarters and a uniquely landscaped, wrap-around outdoor patio. Over at the Shady Dell in Lowell, pick a restored travel trailer, each with its own décor. Fingers crossed that the newest incarnation of almost historic Dot’s Diner at the Shady Dell will open soon. Many who visit return regularly for the many events held in town – like the Bisbee 1000 Great Stair Climb, the Blues in Bisbee Music Festival, the Mariachi Festival and Bisbee Pride parade. The more let-your-hair-down celebrations like the Return of the Turkey Vultures, Alice in Bisbee Land and Pirates of the High Desert provide the chance to revel in the ridiculous. And on holidays, the hometown festivities of the 4th of July and the Holiday Festival of Lights, weather permitting, bring back memories of childhood excitement and delightful expectation. The eclectic mountain town has much to offer and as you will see, ideas become successful storefronts, accommodations and popular offbeat events. And, there is always room for one more.

Neighborhoods San Jose

The San Jose section of Bisbee is where much of the town’s commercial shopping is done. From food to 2 x 4s, you can find the deals on Naco Highway. The district is known for its smaller homes, fenced yards and the tradition of passing the homes down through generations. Bisbee is the seat of Cochise County and the offices are found there in San Jose.

Lowell Lowell was, at one time, a sizable mining town located just to the southeast of Old Bisbee. The majority of the original townsite was consumed by the excavation of the Lavender Pit mine during the 1950s. However, what remains of Lowell today is a strikingly intact, historical midcentury street — often utilized as a backdrop for film and video shoots — and well worth a visit to walk back in time. Lowell is perched at the southern end of the dramatic Lavender Pit, itself a must see.

The neighborhood is the first planned community in Arizona intended as a home for the mine management and other more affluent citizens of the town. Warren has a fine collection of Arts and Crafts style bungalow houses. Many have been recognized as historic places. The city offers an annual Historic Home Tour during which a varying selection are offered for public display.

INTRODUCING

INTRODUCING

INTRODUCING

Old Bisbee is the historic center of town. The very walkable Main Street turns into Tombstone Canyon as you head uphill, and serves as the main thoroughfare of the town offering vistas the how-did-they-do-that crafty homes that hang form the hillsides. From the centrally located Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum, visitors can also head up the notorious Brewery Gulch and check out the graffiti that dots the empty lots and old walls and climb the stairs to City Park for a view up the Gulch.

Things to see Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum With a history deserving of National Landmark status, it’s only fitting that Bibsbee’s past be captured and reflected in a museum like no other — which is exactly why the Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum joined forces with the Smithsonian’s Affiliation program. Once known as the Queen of the Copper Camps, Bisbee is nestled among the Mule Mountains, world renowned for its diverse minerals and wealth of copper. Although its mines closed in the ‘70s, the small town’s legacy has long been preserved, not only in its architecture and mining landscape, but in a museum that has welcomed, educated and entertained more than a half-million visitors ever since. Featured among its exhibits is “Bisbee: Urban Outpost on the Frontier,” an in-depth look at the depths - and heights - to which miners and settlers went to carve a community and a living out of rock. Adult admission $8 and Senior admission $7. No. 5 Copper Queen Plaza, PO Box 14, Bisbee, AZ 85603, (520) 432-7071

Warren Ballpark The ballfield is (arguably) the oldest continuously-operated baseball diamond in the U.S. Historically, copper has been the community’s work, but baseball is its play. When the Warren town site was laid out in 1906, a spot was reserved for Warren Ballpark. The first game was played there June 27, 1909. The Ballpark was originally built to give mine workers and their families a chance to watch baseball on lazy summer nights. The cost of construction was $3,600. In its early years, the Warren field hosted town, company and semi-pro teams. In November 1913, the Chicago White Sox and the New York Giants battled it out at Warren as part of an international tour to drum up interest in baseball. The game purportedly featured five future Hall of Famers: outfielders Tris Speaker and Sam Crawford, catcher Ray Schalk, manager John McGraw, and pitcher Red Faber, who would go on

to become the majors’ last legal spitball pitcher. Also competing that day was 1912 Olympic hero Jim Thorpe, who would eventually be inducted into the Football Hall of Fame. He hit a home run to help the Giants win. The first organized minor league team, the Bisbee Bees, began playing in Warren in 1928, in the Class D Arizona State League. Bisbee teams have been farm clubs of the Chicago Cubs, the Los Angeles Angels and the New York Yankees, and some famous names have passed through town. Future Yankees player and manager Billy Martin played at Warren for the Phoenix Senators in 1947. The stadium still hosts a vintage “Base Ball” tournament each year, with teams from throughout the southwest competing according to 19th century rules and sporting era-appropriate uniforms.

Bisbee’s Heritage Stairs

BISBEE DIRECTORY

One of Bisbee’s most magnificent architectural achievements are the countless concrete stairs that cling to the steep canyonsides. Lack of flat land and the need for miners and bosses to reside near their workings led to the construction of hundreds of hillside homes beginning in the late 1870s. The owners and occupants of the irregularly shaped, sometimes nearly vertical, parcels had to develop dependable routes to reach their properties. The sturdy early Bisbeeite initially relied on precipitous trails featuring switchbacks. However, these winding inclines soon proved impractical as they were difficult to maintain and became slippery in wet weather. Next, the clever canyon-side dwellers constructed a network of wooden stairs, often resembling ladders. The wooden stairs provided straight up and down access to the dwellings from the canyon floor. This, however, changed in the 1930s. Many of the major concrete stairways we still see today were constructed during the 1930s by the Works Progress Administration, one of the federal government’s back-to-work programs. ‘WPA’ was often pressed into the concrete or tagged on an embedded bronze plaque. It is still common for nice houses to be situated on a parcel that is accessible only by climbing 100 or 200 steps to reach the front door. Come explore our stairs...there are thousands of them.

Copper Miner

(Iron Man sculpture) A New Deal Depression-era sculpture by R. Phillips Sanderson, cast in concrete and covered with a think layer of copper and completed in 1935, Bisbee native Lee Petrovich posed for the sculpture, which commemmorates the copper miners of Bisbee and aims to portray “Beauty, toil and simplicity.” 100 Quality Hill (Quality Hill at Tombstone Canyon Rd.), Old Bisbee

Copper Queen Library Originally located in a corner of the company store across the street, the Copper Queen was the first public library in Arizona. The current structure, built in 1905-06, is notable for its prominent three story high arches. The ground floor is occupied by the town’s central post office, the second and third floors by the Bisbee Public Library. It’s collections range from the original Pritchard donation of some 400 classic volumes to the most current titles (including print, audio, video and electronic) in art, literature, history, politics, medicine, science, and popular culture. Friends of the Copper Queen Library is an association that sponsors educational and volunteer programs in connection with and support of the library. 6 Main Street, PO Box 1857, Bisbee, AZ 85603, 520-432-4232

Evergreen Cemetery Established in 1892, Evergreen replaced the Old City Park cemetery in Brewery Gulch, which was upslope from the drinking water wells. Several astute folks of the late 19th century suggested that such a situation might pose a health risk to the early residents of Bisbee. By order of the Common Council of Bisbee in 1914, the transfer of the residents from the old cemetery to Evergreen had begun. Today, there are over 10,000 burials in the cemetery. Evergreen Cemetery now features a kiosk that indicates where certain people are buried. There are many interesting old headstones and the baby section is sure to tug at your heart strings.
