Digging in to Bisbee's mining heritage

The Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum's new permanent exhibit, “Digging In: Bisbee’s Mineral Heritage,” received the Governor’s Award for Arizona Preservation from the Arizona Office of Tourism and the Award of Merit for Leadership in History from the American Association of State & Local History, according to the Sierra Vista Herald. The new exhibit was created by the Smithsonian Institution.

Bisbee and Sierra Vista residents get free admission during August.

  1. As a volunteer docent at the Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum, I am familiar with the Digging In exhibit. The real gem is the collection of minerals on display. This is, without doubt, one of the finest, if not the finest, regional mineral collections in the U.S. Larry Elkins - Elkinsphotos Photography
