Old Car Buffs and Photographers love the Lowell Neighborhood. Erie Street is home to the Original Bisbee Breakfast Club, The Shady Dell, Historic Evergreen Cemetery, and the Lavender Pit, the former home of the rest of what was the town of Lowell. At one time before the Lavender Pit gutted the area, Lowell was its own city. It is still worth exploring.
Be sure to visit Erie Street, a part of Bisbee’s history. This is one of the more interesting districts of Bisbee after the historic downtown. Many people miss it. Erie Street is worthwhile. Stop by and have breakfast or lunch at the Original Bisbee Breakfast Club.

Scenes from the Lavender Pit Mine and the Storyboards
The Lavender Pit Mine, named for VP of Phelps Dodge Harrison Lavender after his death is worth a stop. It was mined from 1950 – 1974 after relocating part of the town of Lowell. The waste was dumped by truck south of the pit, near the district of Warren, visible from Arizona Street.
Bisbee’ Evergreen Cemetery
Evergreen Cemetery contains the history of Bisbee. It is fun to explore notable monuments here reconstructing the history of Bisbee. We were fortunate enough to take part in a reenactment bringing back people from our past that formed our future here in Arizona.
The Shady Dell – Everyone loves this throwback to the 50’s in Old Lowell.
There are several Guided historic Jeep Tours available. Each one has its own special niche.
