Welcome to Bumble Bee
Bumble Bee – A small, perhaps very small, town

About 55 miles north of Phoenix (just off I-17 at Exit # 248) lies the town of Bumble Bee. This was once a busy stop along the stage coach line that ran from Phoenix to Prescott. Now it stands as a ghost town.

At one time, the sign above may have been accurate, but according to the information I could find on the Internet, Bumble Bee has not been included in past Census counts so reliable information about the current population is a bit of guesswork.

One thing we can be sure of, the sign indicates the type of community it was during its last productive era.
