Boothill Graveyard was the Tombstone City Cemetery from 1878 to 1884. It was not called Boothill until the 1920s. Its occupants ran the spectrum of all the cultures and nationalities of early Tombstone. Cowboys who "died with their boots on" lie next to housewives, business men and women, miners, gamblers, ladies of the "red-light district" and all the famous and not so famous occupants that contributed to Tombstone's early history. By the 1920s, Boothill had fallen into ruin with many grave markers lost or unreadable. A group of citizens in Tombstone and Cochise County began the task of researching old burial records, consulting with relatives, older residents, and using all means available to identify the occupants and mark the graves properly. The task took several years and the efforts of many to accomplish. This resulted in the graveyard being restored much as it was in the early years when it was the city cemetery.

Even this place has some fun history. Loved reading the headstones and figuring out the puns or jokes. Unreal.

Boothill is an inexpensive interesting stop. You can use the booklet you're given to find graves and learn some history of the events of the times. A self guided tour, you can take as much time as you like.

There are many boothill graveyards throughout the US, but the one in Tombstone is probably the most famous. On the north-east corner of Tombstone, it's a fun and sober way to spend some time. Access from the sufficiently large parking lot is gained by walking...More

This was the first thing we checked out in Tombstone. Well worth the small fee. So much history, the pamphlet is great for giving you all the gory information of how everyone died. Definitely a step into the old west. Loved it.

Another part of Tombstone that feels like going back in time. Again I imagine that most visitirs find their way here and rightly so, a Tombstone must visit.
