Here you see the Van Wagenen/Fisk Building which was built in 1905 using the Victorian Style. Van Wagenen’s wife founded Globe’s first hospital in 1880. Next is the Gila County Jail which was built in 1909 by Pauly Jail Building Company. The cells were transported from the Yuma Territorial Prison. This jail was in use until 1978. Third is the impressive Gila County Courthouse built in 1906. Next is the Globe Theater which was built in 1918 in the Vernacular Art Deco Style. The theater operated continuously until 1998. Last is the United State Post Office & Courthouse built in 1926 using the Georgian Revival Style.

Directions: The Historic District is located just off US Highway 60; mostly on Broad and Hill Streets and some of the side streets.
