BISBEE HISTORICAL TOURS
BISBEE HISTORICAL TOURS TO
IMMERSE GUESTS INTO CITY'S PAST
Bisbee Historical Tours will engage guests as they walk through Bisbee's
preserved city scape during four of the tours. With four tours each
Saturday and Sunday, guests can select from tours offering a broad
overview of Bisbee's past. The tours will begin on Saturday. Three
tours will begin at the stage in the Copper Queen Plaza, while one will
commence at St. Patrick's Church on Higgins Hill. The tour guides will
be dressed in period clothing, setting the ambiance for the time period
when Bisbee was a boom-town. The walking tours will cover Lower
Tombstone Canyon, Main Street, Howell Avenue and Brewery Gulch.\
A "Historical Haunted Tour" will also be offered. The haunted tour is
based on Bisbee Native, Francine Powers' (aka Fran Maklary) book,
"Mi Reina: Don't Be Afraid". All tours are restricted to the commercial
district of Old Bisbee. Powers, who is also an award-winning journalist
said, "This book is my personal diary of my life with the supernatural
while growing up in Bisbee. It has always been important to me to
keep the history of my hometown true and alive. The book was first
published in 2003 and is on its second print. Actor Dave Hight is a
tour guide who has had parts in 16 movies and has appeared in 45 TV
spots, 7 commercials and 15 videos world wide. You can see Hight
in the Westerns "the Gundown" and "Ambush at Dark Canyon" on NETFLIX.
Hight has also been a regular actor at the "OK Corral" in Tombstone,
Arizona for seven years. He usually portrays Ike Clanton. The actor
has a background of Dinner Theater and performed in Bisbee for four
years. The first tour of the day will begin at St. Patrick's Church at
11 AM - 12 PM; 2nd tour will be from 1 PM - 2 PM; 3rd tour will be
from 2:20 PM - 4 PM; and the last tour is from 4:30 PM - 6 PM.

BISBEE MINI MUSEUM OF THE BIZARRE
In the late 1800's many wealthy people in Europe started collecting odd and eccentric items from around the world. Most placed these oddities in cabinets later referred to as cabinets of curiosities. Eventually people started showcasing their oddities in traveling road shows. In the United States people started opening up their 'dime museums' in the back of their small town storefronts to entice the public to view their strange and unusual collections.
Located at 7 Howell Avenue, next to the Copper Queen Hotel,the Bisbee Mini Museum of the Bizarre showcases Renee Gardner’s collection of strange, unusual, and odd objects from around the world. Items in the collection include a mummified fairy, two-headed squirrel, glass eye, death mask of John Dillinger and atomic dime to name a few.
Open 11am – 5pm Thursday through Monday
Admission price $3.00 per person

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.
