GETTING LOST IN THE COPPER CORRIDOR

Can you guess where in the Copper Corridor the photo on the cover was taken? If you guessed Superior, then you would be right. This is the La Mina Bar on Main Street in Superior. The La Mina Bar is one of the oldest bars still operating in the mining town of Superior. Stop in for a visit and see many historical artifacts and learn more about the good ole days of Superior. Quick fact – in the 1950’s a statistical survey documented that Superior had more bars per capita than any other location in the nation. In its heyday, Superior had over 22 operating bars. Coors Beer once declared that there was more Coors beer sold in Superior than any other place in the state of Arizona and possibly the United States. Over the next couple of months, theNuggetwill take our readers on a journey through the Copper Corridor, helping you to ‘Get Lost.’
