The community was founded in 1880 and quickly became a thriving urban center, driven by a booming mining industry that thrived on the area's rich reserves of copper and precious metals.
Today, Bisbee's extraordinarily well-preserved early 20th century downtown draws visitors from around the world, who appreciate its historic architecture, its welcoming and creative spirit, and its cool climate. The Copper Queen Mine tour as well as the Mining and History Museum are definite must-sees. Bring the family and explore Bisbee on an e-bike, golf cart or jeep. Enjoy our fabulous restaurants and explore our wonderful shops. Bisbee also serves as an ideal overnight home base for visitors — birders, hikers, wine tasters, music appreciators and others who wish to explore our geologically, biologically and culturally rich "sky islands" region.
Come be yourself, be inspired, be refreshed ... Come be Bisbee for a while.
