Globe is centrally located in the State of Arizona. It is the County Seat of Gila County. Globe itself has a population of 7,532 (200 Census) and covers 18 square miles. Globe is adjacent to Miami, Arizona and the San Carlos Indian Reservation. In 1875, prospectors found silver in the San Carlos Apache Reservation, including an unusual globe-shaped silver nugget that gave Globe its name. In just four years, the silver began to give out, but by then copper deposits were discovered and helped the Globe/Miami area to thrive. In the 1900s, the Old Dominion Copper Company in Globe ranked as one of the world's richest. The Old Dominion closed in 1931 and mining operations moved to nearby Miami. Globe's economy remains heavily dependent on the mining industry, and as of 2008 the city was home to one of the few operating copper smelters in the United States.  More information can be found at Globe's website: City of Globe
