Long Description:
Inscription:
In the early 1900's the rough edges of Bisbee's mining camps could be found here in notorious Brewery Gulch with its dozens of saloons, gambling halls and crib houses. The street got its name from a common activity in Bisbee's early days, represented by Muheim's Brewery building, which still stands today. The "Gulch" was also the location of the Bisbee Stock Exchange, making it the center of activity in more ways than one. One of the popular spots was St. Elmo Bar, the oldest bar in Bisbee, which is still in business to this day.
