A visit to Tombstone would not be complete without a visit to the old Courthouse. The courthouse houses many artifacts and gives a perspective on Tombstone in its day.

A whole lot of history in one place. It covers the cowboys, the silver mining, ranching and the building of Tombstone. Wonderful pictures and treasures and worth the visit. Take your time going through and be sure to go everywhere.

Being a lover of history, the Courthouse always appealed to me. I have traveled across the county to Tombstone multiple times and the Courthouse is always a stop no matter how many times I'm in town. The architecture alone is thrilling to see and imagine...More
