Bisbee was once an old mining town and is located about 90 miles southeast of Tucson. In 2010 the population was estimated at roughly 5,570.

And if you like to take a trip down memory lane then check out 72 Erie Street, Bisbee, Arizona 85603. We actually drove down this abandoned street. No tours or reservations here.
