Bankruptcy Attorneys In Bisbee, Arizona
Located nearly one hundred miles southeast of Tucson is Bisbee, a city and the county seat of the Cochise County which as of the 2010 census was home to 5,575 individuals.
The area was founded as a gold, silver, and copper mining town back in 1880 and was named after Judge DeWitt Bisbee (one of the financial backers of the Copper Queen Mine). Throughout the early 20th century the successful mining of the Mule Mountains caused the population of the city to soar. It was incorporated in 1902, and by 1910 its population nearly doubled its population today at 9,019.
Unrest in Bisbee
Like many other industries in the early 1900s, miners in Bisbee tried to demand better wages and working conditions. In an attempt to prevent unionization, the Phelps Dodge Corporation sent private police in 1917 to transport over 1,000 striking miners at gun point out of Bisbee and over to the town of Hermans, New Mexico, because there were allegations that those miners were members of the Industrial Workers of the World.
Open pit mining continued, but by mid-century the population had dropped to less than 6,000 and in 1975 the Phelps Dodge Corporation stopped all copper mining operations in the area.
A Quirky Culture
In the 1960s Bisbee became a top destination for hippies and other counter cultures. Renowned artist Stephen Hutchinson and his wife bought and redecorated the Copper Queen Hotel and marketed Bisbee as a destination where travellers can enjoy an authentic old Southwest experience. Historic downtown, also known as “Old Bisbee”, continues to have a lively and thriving downtown cultural scene.
A Risky Business Climate
Bisbee began to earn its title as being “quirky” and “cool” in the 1990s. Many small businesses such as coffee shops and live theatre productions cropped up in the area, many of which were a success. Many others, however, have or are currently faltering because of today’s tumultuous economic climate.
