“The real wild wild west!”

Get a glimpse of the true old West at Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park. Built in 1882 in the shape of a Roman cross, the two-story Victorian structure once housed the offices of the sheriff, recorder, treasurer, board of supervisors, jail, and courtrooms of Cochise County. Today, the 12,000 square foot courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory.Exhibits portray the authentic history of Tombstone as a frontier silver mining boomtown. Learn about miners, cattlemen and pioneers, and see a reproduction of the courtroom and sheriff’s office. Displays include a tax license for operating a brothel and an invitation to a hanging. A replica of the gallows in the courtyard represents where seven men were hanged.The park includes a museum, exhibits, a gift shop, restrooms, and shaded picnic areas.

I'm a sucker for a historical town. It was off our destination path but very glad we detoured. We stayed at the landmark look out lodge. It was pet friendly and had a free breakfast. Very very nice people here. He did say to go ahead and call them for a reservation, they will beat the online prices. They prefer to give the discount to you than commission to the travel people... So that's something to think about. Overall tombstone is a good stop if you can swing it! I would like to go back and spend more time and see more.

I wish I had read roadtrippers reviews on this town before I planned the trip. We had only one night in Tombstone and it wasn't enough. Plan to stay two nights at least as like others mentioned, the only thing opened after 5 is bars. The only other issue we had, there wasn't enough people wearing period costumes. EVERYONE was friendly, but there wasn't much activity on the street. Shop owners dress in modern clothing.

Anyone who grew up on westerns needs to visit this place. We really enjoyed the reinactment of the gunfight at the OK Corral. Locals dress the old west part to add that extra touch.
