In the old business section of Bisbee’s ‘Brewery Gulch’, Swiss immigrant Joseph Maria Muheim (1867-1951) came in 1888, began as a bartender and rose to affluence as a local merchant, banker, investor, mining magnate and builder. In 1905, he constructed the imposing Muheim Block (The Brewery, still standing) and the Orpheum Theatre at the foot of Brewery Avenue, the location of today’s Goar Park. The theatre was managed by C. J. Alden, and it did not survive long.
