Bumble Bee got its post office in 1879. There are still people here, and the interesting sights are either occupied or private property. There was never a gold boom here; Bumble Bee was a stage stop. The community built a fake set of ghost town store fronts to attract tourists but it is now abandoned. Bumble Bee is on the way to Cleator and Crown King.
