If you wish to skip the mountaintop/offroad version of our Bisbee Jeep Tours, no worries, we have a marvelous in-town tour full of history, sites, and stories for you to discover with the Bisbee Lowell Warren Tour.

 

After picking you up at a location of your choosing, the Bisbee Lowell Warren Tour includes the following sites:

 

Warren

Warren sits in the "foothills" section of the Bisbee area and is packed with history. Warren, named after George Warren, started in 1902 and some of its interesting architecture includes the Warren Ballpark, the Calumet & Arizona Hospital, the Campbell Mine Shaft (deepest in the area), the Walter Douglas House, and many more sites of intrigue. Warren is also where the "Black Sox" found a home, is the gathering place of the Bisbee Deportation, and has a Green(Way) House that Teddy Roosevelt liked to visit. Besides Teddy Roosevelt, Warren has had famous residents and visitors like Billy Martin, Johnny Depp, and Jim Thorpe. Not to mention the famous American who was a member of Teddy Roosevelt's "Rough Riders". Warren is often overlooked by Bisbee visitors because it's hidden by the Lavender Pit's tailings but a must-see contributor to Bisbee history.

 

Lowell

Lowell had nearly 6000 residents in its heyday and is the community closest to Old Bisbee. 6000 folks in Lowell and 25,000 folks in Old Bisbee might have made the area bigger than San Francisco at that time. Most of the residential homes in Lowell were moved to make way for open pit mining in the 1950s. In fact, your tour guide's family settled in Lowell in 1913 before the open pit dominated the landscape. Erie Street (Lowell's Main St.), however, is still intact and preserved with antique vehicles and storefronts. Do you remember gas pumps that sat on the edge of curbs? Erie Street is also a great place to witness a professional photo shoot on the weekends because of its scenic infrastructure. Lowell is even more intriguing when you learn that a section of Erie Street sits on a giant bed of Bisbee Blue Turquoise ore. The Shady Dell Hotel, the Evergreen Cemetery, the Junction Mine Shaft, and the Denn Mine Shaft are part of Lowell's history and full of famous events and people, like Frank Hanchett. Do you know who he is?

 

Old Bisbee

Old Bisbee is the crown jewel of the Bisbee area. It's where Bisbee started and possesses unique architecture framed within canyon walls that supported the largest city between the Mississippi River and San Francisco. Places like the Red-light District, Brewery Gulch, and the "Hanging Tree" are part of numerous historic sites to learn about and visit. Besides others, you'll hear about John Wayne, Ted DeGrazia, and the real father of Bisbee - James Douglas. We'll travel narrow, edge-of-dropoff streets that are two-way and one lane wide. Many events happened in Old Bisbee's development and history. Did you know John Lynch joined the first posse looking for himself? He was a cheeky fellow who met his demise on a telegraph pole outside the Tombstone Courthouse.  

 

Once the tour finishes and you're chock-full of Bisbee history from the in-town version of our Bisbee tours, the Big Jeep happily and gratefully delivers you to any dropoff location of your choosing.
