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.

MINING & HISTORICAL MUSEUM
With a history deserving of National Landmark status, it's only
fitting that Bisbee's past be captured and reflected in a museum
like no other. Which is exactly why the Bisbee Mining & Historical
Museum recently joined forces with the Smithsonian's Affiliation
Program. Once known as The Queen of the Copper Camps, Bisbee is
nestled among the Mule Mountains, work 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 communtiy
and a living out of rock.
