Boothilll Graveyard, Tombstone

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Cemetery Tourist Spot
Numerous victims of the Wild West were buried at Boothilll Graveyard, one of the most famous western cemeteries thanks to the town's name, during the 19th century. Most of the attraction's "residents" were outlaws, murder victims, those who took their own life by suicide, and people hanged between 1878 and 1884. It is believed that around 250 bodies lie at the cemetery. In some cases they were identified immediately, but others were showcased in the undertaker's window until someone recognized them, even if just by nickname. You'll see causes of death such as "Stabbed," "Drowned," "Killed by Indians," and "Died of Leprosy," and references like "Queen of the Red Light District."

  • We walked thru Boot Hill Cemetery reading all the headstone and the brochure gave you info about each person and how they died.  more »
  • Don't miss Tombstone's Boothill cemetery! A walk along each row of headstones is good for some shocks and laughs!  more »
  • It is a small cemetery with the graves of many of the Tombstone residents. It is only a $3 entrance fee. Doe not take too long to visit.  more »
