​To celebrate their town's 125th birthday, the residents of Superior, Arizona will open their doors for the fourth-annual home and building tour. 


The town, 30 minutes east of Apache Junction, is well-known for its copper mines, which were shut down in 1980s. With the anchor industry closed, Superior was forced to reinvent itself. 

On January 28, Superior's artists and historians will host tours of renovated homes and buildings that showcase local art and music. According to event coordinators, there will be an antique show at the recently refurbished Magma Club (c.1920) and the Mata Ortiz potters from Mexico will be crafting and firing pottery throughout the weekend.


Walking tours begin at The Copper Gecko, 203 W Main St., and are open to the public on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. 


Tickets are $10 for tour ($8 prepaid). All other events are free. Call 520-689-0200 for more information.
