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.

Stopped in here while visiting Tombstone and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The start of Tombstone. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered everyone's questions. It was quite interesting to know that silver is actually black in its original form.

My wife, grand son and I took this tour. James was our guide. He had lots of info to share. You go down about 100' into the mine. This was hard rock mining. You'll be glad that you are given hard hats!
