Bisbee's history is rich with that of mining and the rough and tumble world of the Old West. Fran Powers, born in Bisbee and (until recently) a life-long resident, is ready to share with listeners the haunted history of Bisbee. From the notorious Copper Queen to the not as well known Bisbee Grand, sleeping with ghosts is not a difficult find. Ms. Powers brings with her a lifetime of stories about the ghosts of Bisbee, compiled in a book named "Mi Reina, Don't Be Afraid". Chronicling her experiences as a young child and as an adult, this book is the first of its kind, published in 2003. While the majority of her experiences are personal, she has also taken part in investigations in conjunction with some paranormal research groups. Spend an hour with me and explore one of the more haunted cities in the United States. On the verge of becoming a ghost town following the closure of the mine there, the people of Bisbee found a way to revitalize themselves while still maintaining the feel of what Bisbee once was, a vital, somewhat decadent, extremely peaceful village somehow built on the side of a mountain. Bring a pad an pen with you so you might plan a haunted vacation in Bisbee, AZ, one of the last bastions of the Old West.
