SUPERIOR — The 15th Annual Superior Home Tour & Antique Show will take place on January 28th and 29th in the historic mining town of Superior, Arizona. Hosted by the Superior Chamber of Commerce, the event offers ticket holders a chance to explore several unique homes in the historic community. This year’s tour includes “The Surprise House,” a brick home built in the 1920s that has been fully restored. The home has retained much of its original character, including in the kitchen, which features the original cabinets from a bygone era. The home is one of several in the area that housed the mine supervisors from Magma Copper Mine and were company owned until the 1970s.
The antique show will take place at the Magma Club, a beautifully restored 100+ year old building in downtown Superior. The building once hosted dinners, dancing, and boxing matches for Magma Mine workers. Attendees can browse quality antiques or relax and listen to live music on the veranda while taking in the mountain views.
Both days begin with a pancake breakfast. Throughout the day, attendees can explore at their own pace, while also taking part in guided hikes, or listening to dynamic speakers. Attendees will hear stories of Superior’s history and the legends who once roamed there, including Mattie Blaylock, Wyatt Earp’s common-law wife, who is buried in the Pinal Cemetery just outside of town. This year’s speakers include Wyatt Earp, a descendant of the western lawman. In addition, the Tour will feature handmade pottery for sale from the Mexican village of Mata Ortiz and a chance to browse the various shops in downtown Superior.
Tickets are $20 on the day of the event or $17 presale. All ticket holders receive 2-for-1 tickets to the Renaissance Festival and Boyce Thompson Arboretum. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.superiorazhometour.com.
