“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.

2 stories of memorabilia. We hit this last and were beginning to tire of hearing basically the same stories. This place had more of what the life of the typical people of the era would have used. Interesting.

This is a great stop if you have an hour or two to go through and want to learn about some real history of Tombstone. Be sure not to miss the gallows out in the "backyard" and the "jail" you can lock yourself in to take photos!
