O.K. Corral, Tombstone

4.3
The O.K. Corral (Old Kindersley) was a livery and horse corral from 1879 to about 1888 in the mining boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona Territory, in the southwestern United States near the border with Mexico.Despite its famous association with the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, the historic gunfight did not take place within or next to the corral on Allen Street, but in a narrow lot on Fremont Street, six doors west of the rear entrance to the corral. The lot was between Harwood's home and C. S. Fly's 12-room boarding house and photography studio.The 1957 film Gunfight at the O.K. Corral made the shootout famous and the public was incorrectly led to believe it was the actual location of the altercation. Despite the historical inaccuracy, the corral is currently marketed and advertised as the location of the shootout, and visitors can pay to see a reenactment of the gunfight. The corral is now part of the Tombstone Historic District.OriginsAt the time of the gunfight on October 26, 1881, the O.K. Corral and Livery was one of seven liveries and corrals in the city of about 5,300 residents, excluding Chinese and children. The others included the Dexter Livery (owned by John Dunbar and Johnny Behan), Pioneer Livery, Tombstone Livery, West End Corral, P.W. Smith Corral, C.N. Thomas West End Corral, and the Fashion Stables,

  • The best part of walking the street were the placards that explained each step leading up to the showdown at OK  more »
  • The actors who portrayed the people from the actual gun fight were good, and they made the show enjoyable by being truly entertaining and funny during the show.  more »

  • I missed the reenactment four times over two days but heard it. Fun place in a very beautiful area. Everything in town is privately owned by whoever's in the shop, so you have to pay for everything. But a really interesting place if you're into history or just want something different.
  • Wow, what a place, a gunfight and actors. The actors go to great detail to look the part and preform their roles. They stroll around the town between shows and stay in character but are very friendly and will allow you a picture with them and enjoy their work
