Bisbee is a city in Cochise County, Arizona, United States, southeast of Tucson. According to the 2010 census, the population of the city was 5,575. The city is the county seat of Cochise County.HistoryBisbee was founded as a copper, gold, and silver mining town in 1880, and named in honor of Judge DeWitt Bisbee, one of the financial backers of the adjacent Copper Queen Mine.In 1929, the county seat was moved from Tombstone to Bisbee, where it remains.Mining industryMining in the Mule Mountains proved quite successful: in the early 20th century the population of Bisbee soared. Incorporated in 1902, by 1910 its population had swelled to 9,019, and it sported a constellation of suburbs, including Warren, Lowell, and San Jose, some of which had been founded on their own (ultimately less successful) mines. In 1917, open-pit mining was successfully introduced to meet the copper demand during World War I.A high quality turquoise promoted as Bisbee Blue was a by-product of the copper mining. Many high-quality mineral specimens have come from Bisbee area mines and are to be found in museum collections worldwide. Some of these minerals include cuprite, aragonite, wulfenite, malachite, azurite, and galena.Plan your tour of Bisbee and United States travel itinerary using our United States travel planner.
