Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park, Tombstone

4.4
Visit Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park for a glimpse into the history of the Old West in this historic silver mining town. The two-story brick structure that looks like a Roman cross was once Cochise County's jail, and included courtrooms and offices for the sheriff, treasurer, and board of supervisors. Built in 1882, it now houses exhibits that describe life for the miners, cattlemen, and pioneers who built Tombstone. Exhibits include a tax license for the operation of a brothel, a replica of the original gallows that stood in the courthouse courtyard, and many examples of firearms owned and used by the pioneers during the mining boom. The site offers numerous shaded picnic areas.

  • Fun place to visit. I definitely recommend seeing the Gun fights. The stage coach ride was ok. Not sure if it was worth the money, but the people we're very nice!
  • Cool place to visit. Lots of history. I suggest taking the trolley with mining tour. I really wanted to do the haunted tour. There are a few places you can get into for free. If you aren't careful, you can overspend if you are going on a budget.
