Tour Celebrates Town Full of History

The Bisbee Historic Home Tour spotlights quirky town's century-old architecture

The Bisbee Historic Home Tour will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year in the theme of Arizona's centennial.

The tour, which will include 10 historic homes, a church and the Bisbee Women's Club, will spotlight some of the very unique architecture in the mining town of Bisbee, most of which dates back over 100 years.

The walking tour will take place Friday, November 23 and Saturday, November 24, and will be followed each evening by holiday-themed events, food and shopping. Tickets are available for $15 at the Bisbee Visitors Center.

"People will have a chance to see 12 sites that are all totally unique, and on Saturday they will have a chance to bid on some wondeful chairs and other small furniture items that are designed by local artists at the Art Chairs Auction," says Ilona Smerekanich, the tour's co-chair.
