Q. Who sponsors the Bisbee Home Tour?

A. The Bisbee Home Tour is sponsored by The Bisbee Woman’s Club. Organized in 1900, the Club is housed in an historic building at the corner of Ledge and Cross Avenues in Old Bisbee. The Woman’s Club building is in the National Register of Historic Places. The mission of the Woman’s Club is to encourage women to further their education, improve their skills, expand their rights, and to apply abilities and special sensitivities to our community’s problems. For that reason, the Club sponsors the Home Tour as their largest fundraiser of the year. With the profit, they provide donations to local non-profits like the Copper Queen Library, provide scholarships for Bisbee High School senior girls and support various art, education and social services non-profits.

Q. Are there other events associated with the Home Tour?

A. Yes! The 16th Annual Art Chair Auction, entitled “Art Chairs and More” will be held at the Turquoise Valley Country Club,1794 W Newell Street in Naco from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days of the Home Tour. There will be much more than chairs at the Chair Auction this year – tables, mirrors and other decor items for the home will be included. Admission is free, but once you see the amazing creations of our artists, you’ll surely want to place a bid! There is a special reception with the artists on Saturday from 4:00-5:00, with bidding ending at 5:00 sharp – and we accept MasterCard and Visa at the event. For photos of last year’s creations and more information, see the Art Chair Auction section of this website.

Q. Will there be parking available for the Home Tour?

A. Yes – your ticket to the Tour will include a map that shows where there is available parking. There is a lot of parking available in these areas, which are a bit flatter than the hills of Old Bisbee. If you wear flat shoes and comfortable clothing, walking in all locations will be a breeze.

Q. Are there restaurants located near the tour?

A. There are many fine restaurants around Bisbee, Warren and San Jose to offer you lunch and dinner options. For more complete restaurant information, go to

Q. Can I bring my dog along on the tour?

A. Your dog is welcome as long as he/she doesn’t come inside the homes. Our homeowners are justifiably proud of their lovely interiors, and although many of them are dog lovers, they would prefer human visitors only on Tour day. Some previous visitors have worked in teams so that someone can stay outside with the dog while the others view the home interiors.

  2. Hi I purchased our tickets on line. I see in the notes that a map will be included with the tickets. But I did not get a map? Will this be provided at Turquoise valley golf course?


    • Hi, Kenny –

      Yes, actually the ticket and the map are the same thing. We don’t give out maps prior to Tour Day because we want to respect the privacy of the homeowners. But your map will be ready and waiting for you at Turquoise Valley. Thanks so much – can’t wait to see you!

  3. We are visiting from Tucson and want to plan our day for touring the homes on Saturday. If we buy our tickets at Finders Keepers, will we have a map, so we can do the homes in Old Bisbee (assuming there are some) first and eat lunch at our favorite place and then go on down south to Naco? Thanks!

    • Hi, Cynthia – So excited that you’re joining us! You can buy the ticket at Finders Keepers – and the map is on the ticket, so you’ll be all set. Just so you know, all the homes this year are in the San Jose/Naco area, so if you’re planning on going down south to Naco that will be perfect – you might even want to buy your tickets at Dylan’s Bistro on Highway 92 or at Turquoise Valley Golf course in Naco. The homes in San Jose/Naco are super interesting – rammed earth and straw bale architecture, a Christmas house that features 18 decorated trees, a Christmas village with 300 buildings and more… beautiful mountain views, too. Look forward to seeing you there.
