Globe is a city in and the county seat of Gila County, Arizona. It was founded around 1875 as a mining camp when the mining camp at Ramboz Peak relocated to near the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation after silver was discovered there. In July 1876, plans to incorporated Globe were underway as retail stores, banks and the first newspaper were established. By February
88, it became the county seat of Gila County.
Throughout its early development, Globe was known for stagecoach robberies, murders, lynchings, outlaws and Apache raids. In 1884, Ike and Phineas Clanton arrived in Apache County after the OK Corral in Tombstone. Ike was subsequently killed by a local deputy sheriff, and Phineas had to serve prison time for a stage robbery. After his sentence was over, Phineas moved to Globe and died of pneumonia in 1906.
In 1880, the Old Dominion Mining Company was incorporated. The mine was later sold to the Lewisohn Brothers of New York in 1894. In 1904, it was acquired by Phelps-Dodge. From then, the mine and plant were expanded and modernized. As it grew, so did Glob. However, with the labor unrest in copper mines nationwide in 1917, the Globe mine faced a strike. After the war years, it was left neglected and never returned to its former glory. In 1921, the mine closed due to a recession. In 1931, it was permanently shut down. The property was sold a decade later to the Miami Coppery Company as a water supply. Today, it still supplies industrial and domestic water to the area.
