Bisbee, 48 miles south of Benson, and nestled amongst the Mule Mountains, is the picturesque county seat of historic Cochise County. The community was founded in 1880 and named after Judge DeWitt Bisbee, a financial backer of the Copper Queen Mine.  And what a mine site it is – just monstrous, seeing this mine was worth the trip all by itself.  The Queen Mine halted production in the mid-1970’s but now offers tours of the mine.
