Historic Gleeson Jail
1910 - Jail
—Gleeson, Arizona —
Primarily a mining town, Gleeson's fortunes largely rose and fell with the price of copper. When the mines shut down in 1958, most of Gleeson disappeared as well, leaving only a handful of town residents, and a few nearby ranchers. Renovation began in October of 2008, and the building serves as a center for area research and community gatherings.
