The Cochise County Bank

 

Opened as the Cochise County Bank in 1881. There were many attempts to rob this bank, none were successful.  This bank was one of the first time-lock safes in the country.  By time-lock safes this means it can only be opened at certain times of the day, usually morning, afternoon and evening, while several armed guard were standing by.

 There were at least 7 attempts...5 would be robbers and 3 bank managers were killed in these attempts when they couldn't get the safe to open. 

From the mid-1940's to the mid-1960's this was the City Hospital.  A lot of folks in town were born in this building.  As you may know, during the 1940's to 1960's there was a lot of experimental medicine going on in America.  A lot of poor victims died in this building!!!  We've filmed on several occasion a patient walking the street in a white hospital gown!  Strange moans and groans are often heard inside!
