Looking for an adventure that takes you back in time? Look no further than the Artery Tour, where we'll take you on a journey through some of the most fascinating historical sites in Arizona. Our tour starts in Lowell AZ, where you'll discover the preserved architecture of Erie Street and learn about the community that was once home to nearly 6000 residents. You'll get up close to the Lavender Pit, one of the largest open-pit copper mines in the world, and pay a visit to the historic Evergreen Cemetery, where you'll discover the stories of the people who shaped the region, including Frank Hanchet. Our tour also includes a visit to the Shady Dell, a vintage trailer park that offers a glimpse into the unique culture of the area.

As we continue on our Artery Tour, we'll explore the fascinating history of Warren AZ and its surrounding areas. Bakerville, a nearby community, was once home to a group of Serbian miners who played an important role in the mining industry. The "Cousin Jacks," Cornish miners who were known for their expertise in hard-rock mining, also played a significant role in the region's mining history. We'll visit the Warren Ballpark, where famous players like Tris Speaker and Sam Crawford once played exhibition games, and explore the Calumet & Arizona Hospital, which played a vital role in the community's healthcare. We'll learn about the City Beautiful plan, a visionary urban planning initiative that aimed to make Warren AZ one of the most beautiful cities in the world. John C. Greenway, a mining boss who was also a philanthropist, played a key role in the City Beautiful movement and was a friend of Teddy Roosevelt. We'll also delve into the region's labor history and learn about the infamous
Bisbee Deportation, a dark moment in the region's history.  

As the final destination on the Artery Tour, Old Bisbee is a must-see for anyone interested in the rich history and unique architecture of Arizona. Originally known as the Warren Mining District, the town owes its existence to George Warren, who started mining operations in the area in 1877. Over time, the town grew into a thriving community, thanks in large part to the efforts of James Douglas and the Phelps Dodge Corporation. But Bisbee's history goes back even further, with ties to the famous Apache warrior Geronimo. As you explore the town, you'll discover numerous historic sites, including Brewery Gulch, a once-notorious red-light district, and St. Patrick's Church, a stunning example of Gothic Revival architecture. But it's the unique architecture framed within canyon walls that truly sets Old Bisbee apart, with its narrow streets and steep hills providing a glimpse into the town's rich and storied past.
