Bisbee

Bisbee, Arizona was established as a copper, gold and silver mining town in 1880. It thrived until 1975 when Phelps Dodge ceased operations. The exodus of mine workers left the area almost in ghost town status until retirees and artists started buying up the cheap houses. It is now a thriving little town again and remains the County Seat. It has since become known as one of the most gay friendly cities in the USA and that is very obvious as you walk through the Old Bisbee section of town.
