The former Mine Rescue Station at Globe is now the home of the Gila County Historical Society and Museum.  Note the old Chilean grinding mill on display.

The Old Dominion Historic Mine Park preserves and interprets the site of this important mining operation. 

Interpretive trail sign describes the creation of the Old Dominion Historic Mine Park..

 

Old Dominion Mine headframe and processing plant remains are explained along the trails that wind through the once large mining, milling, and smelting complex.

Broad Street runs through the heart of downtown Globe.  The Holy Angels Church is seen in the distance.

The old Gila County Court House (ca1905) has been converted to the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts.

(Left) The facade of an early branch of the Valley National Bank.  The bank was founded by Charles E. Mills.  Among his many management assignments, he served as General Manager of the Inspiration Consolidated Copper Company and the International Smelting Company at Miami. He is an inductee in the Hall of Fame of the Mining Foundation of the Southwest.

 

(above) All that remains of the historic Dominion Hotel is this sign on a building wall.  Alas, the hotel burned to the ground years ago.
