About

The Globe Arizona Silver Belt was first published on May 2, 1878. The weekly paper quickly became the dominant voice for community growth and improvement. The town of Globe emerged as an outgrowth of silver mining claims in the area beginning in 1873. First named Globe City, it was surveyed in 1876 and officially incorporated on May 1, 1878. An isolated mining camp in rugged terrain, Globe struggled to build connections to the outside world. The Arizona Silver Belt’s founding editor, Aaron H. Hackney (“the conscience” of Globe), led the fight.
