The silver piece of the AZ

A globe-shaped chunk of silver discovered near the townsite in the 1800s is said to have inspired the name Globe. Globe’s founding in the 1870s, its mining heyday in the early 1900s, and its current status as a charming town along Arizona’s spectacular Salt River Canyon Scenic Route. Globe is a charming little town approximately an hour and a half east of Phoenix. Globe is a mining town with local art and prehistoric Native American relics, all nestled in a charming small-town setting with a booming regional food scene.

The historic downtown

You’ll notice the “Historic Downtown Globe” sign engraved across an old railroad bridge as you approach Globe. Many of the city’s historic structures can be found walking down Broad Street, the city’s main street. Historic structures include the Gila County Courthouse, Holy Angels Church, and La Luz Del Día Mexican restaurant.
