Bisbee Neighborhoods in the Weird Wild West by Josiah Q. Roe

ALL WORDS AND PHOTOS COURTESY OF JOSIAH Q. ROE

Southeast of Bisbee across The Pit is the neighborhood of Lowell and its famous Erie Street, which looks like an abandoned, atompunk, 1950’s dystopian movie set.


In the early 20th century most of the residential area was consumed by the expansion of the mine, and since then the area has largely been abandoned, with storefronts converted to museum pieces by the Lowell Americana Project.



An exception is the fantastic Bisbee Breakfast Club, a worthwhile visit while exploring Lowell.


Finally, southeast of Lowell is the residential neighborhood of Warren, home to The Bisbee Farmers Market, Doug Stanhope (author of “Keep Warren Boring”), mine tailings, and The Warren Ballpark: one of the oldest ballparks in the United States and pre-dating Wrigley Field by 5 years.
