Copper Miner (Iron Man sculpture)

100 Quality Hill (Quality Hill at Tombstone Canyon Rd.)

Old Bisbee

A New Deal Depression-era sculpture by R. Phillips Sanderson, cast in concrete and covered with a thin layer of copper and completed in 1935. Bisbee native Lee Petrovitch posed for the sculpture, which commemorates the copper miners of Bisbee, and aims to portray ‘beauty, toil and simplicity’. Sanderson had moved to Bisbee during the Depression and worked as a commercial artist. He was paid $30.00 per month by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration during the six months it took to complete the statue. pic by Frank Denogean

Erie Street, Historic Lowell

Erie Street, Historic Lowell

Erie St, Bisbee, AZ, USA

Lowell

Walk back in time and visit a post-apocalyptic landscape from the 1950s. Erie Street is all that is left from what once was a mining town incorporated in the early 1900s. The rest of this historic neighborhood was demolished to widen the open pit copper mine. Erie Street is continually restored by a vibrant and passionate community of residents and volunteers who want to remember a different America. So although you can no longer see a show at Lowell’s movie theater or pay $0.22 for gasoline, the Lowell Americana Project has made it possible to experience the street as a living snapshot of another time. And not everything on Erie Street is purely decorative—visit the Bisbee Breakfast Club for an excellent Huevos Rancheros.

Evergreen Cemetery

Evergreen Cemetery

Old Douglas Road

Lowell

​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. pic by...

Bisbee's Heritage Stairs

Bisbee's Heritage Stairs

Bisbee, AZ, USA

Old Bisbee

One of Bisbee’s most magnificent architectural achievements are the countless concrete stairs that cling to the steep canyon-sides. 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 canyonside 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 approximately 33,000 stairs and 350 sets in Old Bisbee.

Warren Ballpark

Warren Ballpark

Ruppe Avenue at Arizona Street

Warren

​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.
