on their own equipment or data found while analyzing the DVD’s.

This special Ghost Hunt includes a training session, use of equipment,

Oliver House Ghost Hunt

The Oliver House is believed to be one of the most haunted buildings

in the state of Arizona. The locals will tell you that over 26 deaths have

occurred in the building. Built in 1908 by Edith Oliver, the bed and

breakfast has a reputation for being extremely haunted.  Now under

new ownership the Oliver House Bed and Breakfast has partnered

with the Old Bisbee Ghost Tour to bring a monthly ghost hunt in order

to allow guests to help solve the mysteries of the numerous hauntings.

 The most famous ghost which haunts the Oliver House is that of Nat

Anderson. It was rumored that he was having an affair with the Money

Man's wife and owed the Money Man a lot of money. On February 22nd, 1920

at the top of the stairs outside of room 13, Nat Anderson was shot in the

head. His ghost is said to haunt the building to this day, mostly in room 13.

Guests have reported hearing footsteps, running water, the smell of cigar

smoke, whispering and have experienced cold spots throughout the room.

Other ghosts include the Grandma Ghost who makes broken coo coo

clocks go off and can be seen rocking back and forth in her rocking chair.

There is also a room which has a vortex or portal which is believed to be

a passageway from one dimension to the next. 

The Old Bisbee Ghost Tour has trained Paranormal Investigators that will

take guests on a guided tour of the Oliver House to point out the haunted

locations within the building. They will then learn how to use professional

ghost hunting equipment, including K2 Meters, EMF Detectors, Digital

Voice Recorders as well as learn how to take proper photographs while

on a ghost hunt. The guests will use their borrowed equipment to search

for paranormal evidence, then a Spirit Communication Session will

commence in the Parlor Room, which is believed to have been the

location where a mass murder took place in the 1930's. 

Guests who book a room at the Oliver House for the night of the Oliver

House Ghost Hunt will be permitted to use their equipment for the entire

night and will also receive free tickets to the Old Bisbee Ghost Tour for

the Saturday after the Oliver House Ghost Hunt. Space is limited and

reservations should be made in advance.

6th Annual Copper City Classic Vintage Base Ball Tournament

Saturday, April 11th & Sunday, April 12th - Gates open at 9 AM

Bare-handed base ball as it was played when Abraham Lincoln was running for his first term

as president returns to Bisbee’s 105-year-old ballpark for the sixth consecutive year! Teams

from the Arizona Territories Vintage Base Ball league and the Colorado Vintage Base Ball

Association will gather at historic Warren Ballpark on Saturday and Sunday, April 11 and 12

to take part in the Sixth Annual Copper City Classic Vintage base Ball Tournament. The home

team - the Bisbee Black Sox - are off to a good start this season and are hoping to claim the

tournament championship. Come cheer them on – or cheer on your own favorite team – as

ballists wearing vintage-style uniforms play the game by 1860 rules. 

Honoring ‘Scrap Iron’ and an Outstanding Lawman

This year’s tournament will honor two outstanding athletics who played baseball at Warren Ballpark

in years past: Clint “Scrap Iron” Courtney and Sheriff Clarence Dupnik. Clint Courtney began his

professional baseball career as the catcher for the 1947 Bisbee Yanks before moving up the ladder

to a colorful and successful career in the big leagues during the 1950s and 60s. Clarence Dupnik,

a 1954 Bisbee High School graduate, was a star third baseman for the Pumas before beginning a

distinguished career with the Tucson Police Department and as Pima County’s longest-serving Sheriff.

Added attraction: The Post Game Blues

Jim “Mudcat” Grant, ace American League pitcher, baseball historian and musician, is planning to return

for the Post Game Blues concert. Last year Mudcat missed the tournament to receive the prestigious

Jackie Robinson Foundation Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Face of Adversity on the

same date. Join Mudcat along with Tucson’s Cholla High School Blues Standards and Bisbee’s own

Russell “Cat Daddy” Gillespie and his 12-Barz Blues Band for Saturday evening’s Post-Game Blues

concert at the Stock Exchange Saloon and Grill in historic Brewery Gulch.


Tickets are $10 per day or $15 for both days. Children 12 and under are free with an adult ticket.

Active military are free on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased on-line or at the gate. Gates open at

9 a.m. and play will continue until approximately 5 p.m. All funds are used to restore Warren Ballpark

and specifically for the project to build modern, ADA accessible restrooms. For more information

about the tournament and accompanying events, call 520 432-3813
