April 2013

Bisbee, AZ is an old mining town, once the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco.  The Copper Queen mine and others in the area produced more than 3 million ounces of gold and 8 billion pounds of copper, along with silver, lead, zinc, and other minerals.

In the visitor center, a small museum, we met a man, a WWII vet, who told us all about it

They had all sorts of old stuff there in the museum

We ate lunch in their famous hotel

and visited the church, which has some amazing stained glass windows

There is also a copper sculpture of a miner

More pictures.
