As pretty as any postcard, Bisbee continues to stand as a testament to its history. Founded in 1880 as a gold, silver, and copper mining town, it has transitioned over the years since the closing of the mine into the ultimate artist's retreat. Beautiful historic buildings line its Main Street while wild miner shacks cover the hillsides of this valley town. With the population only a little over 5,000, Bisbee is a tight-knit community and gives off the feeling a small European village. Steeped in history and sustained by a creative class, visitors to Old Bisbee can spend their days learning about the past while enjoying a quality selection of galleries and dining experiences one would usually expect in a much larger city.
