The Silver Bell Historical Society

Our Mission


 The Silver Bell Historical Society offers unique resources to researchers, scholars, and the public. History records two communities: Silverbell, which existed in the early 20th century, and Silver Bell, which existed during the last half of the 20th century. Both towns have been deserted, although many who lived here share fond memories of a unique and fraternal place -- in the middle of nowhere in Pima County, Arizona. Located near Marana and Tucson.

You Can Help Preserve Our History.


A society can be defined as  
the aggregate of people living together in a more or less ordered community, and as  an organization or club formed for a particular purpose or activity. You are invited to share in the development of the Silver Bell Historical Society.
