Bumble Bee began as a stage stop in the 1870's, serving the southern Bradshaw's mining camps, including Prescott, Gillette, and Tip Top. Henry Wickenburg lived here just prior to discovering the Vulture Mine. Bumble Bee has had an on-again, off-again existence ever since, leaning mostly toward off-again. In the late 1960's, a fake ghost town was erected in a vain attempt at establishing a tourist attraction. Today the ghost town is gone and Bumble Bee is little more than a wide spot in the road.

    Thanks for the memories. As a teenager living in Phoenix at the time, for about 5 yrs of my youth, I worked and stayed at Bumble Bee and worked weekends at the Trading Post which would be the stone building.The first house to the left (if standing facing what was the trading post) is where we stayed with a gentleman named Dick. I can't for the life of me remember his last name anymore as I am 48 yrs. old now and that was some time ago.I use to love staying there. Dick even had an authentic TeePee we at times slept in,that was set up in the center of the ghost town by where the stables use to be. There also was a reptile House we use to feed all the animals and collect eggs from the Hen///geese houses that were also there.I really do appreciate seeing this old place again. I am currently residing in Wisconsin for the past 30 yrs. and am ever so grateful for reliving if only in pictures this wonderful place I so loved as a child. Thank you again. Peace!

    Questa è una vista generale di USA

    The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
