About Globe-Miami

Globe-Miami, about 90 miles East of Phoenix, just South of Tonto National Forest and just North of the Pinal Mountains, is a hub for Southern Gila County. These communities were founded in 1875 and 1909 respectively; both as mining camps. 

As a frontier town, Globe was home to outlaws, stagecoach robberies, murders, Apache raids, and lynchings. Globe was also a favorite spot of many notorious westerners such as Big Nose Kate and the Apache Kid. The Globe Courthouse was also the location of the Apache Kid trails which is now home to the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts. Due to the rugged conditions of the road and a long (about 6 miles) commute many miners had to the operations just west of town, Cleve W. Van Dyke thought it best to plan a community closer; thus Miami was founded. Although some businesses in Globe feared competition from the new community, the majority of community members were happy to have a new neighbor.

Globe and Miami’s economies are still highly dependent on the mining industry while attracting tourists each year. These tourists come to learn about the area’s history and culture. One major draw is the legacy of Rose Mofford, Arizona’s first female governor who was born and raised in Globe. There is an exhibit in her honor within the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts. Another draw is Besh Ba Gowah which is Salado Pueblo ruins dating back to AD 1225. Along with walking through the remains, there is also a museum where many artifacts from the ruins have been preserved. These, along with Old Dominion Historic Mine Park, Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum, and countless antique shops make a trip to Globe-Miami a leap back into the history of the old west and hundreds of years prior as well.
