Overview
More
The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

Excellent tour! The guide was very interactive and knowledgeable. Worth the visit to Tombstone. Visited the underground mines as part of a Tombstone tour/ visit which was very good also. Saw a re-enactment of the OK Corral gunfight - great actors.

The mine was interesting but the staff is what makes it special, namely the super helpful Theresa at the ticket booth and James the entertaining tour guide. Great job!

I’ve been to Tombstone many times but never did the mine tour. This time we decided to try it out. It was worth every dollar spent. Forrest, our guide, was amusing and very knowledgeable about the mine, the town, the history, and other interesting facts...More

You walk down in the mine to learn history of mining, what they mined, how they mined, what/how it ended. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. #1 authentic thing to do in Tombstone!

Tombstone contrary to movie lore is similar to Deadwood SD built from miners and not cowpokes or rustlers. Strapping on a hard hat and venturing underground to learn about the massive silver production brings you closer to the Tombstone than the OK Coral! There are...More

Worth it to take this tour. Not difficult walking. Lots of tombstone history and describing the lifestyle of a miner in that time period
