Visit Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park for a glimpse into the history of the Old West in this historic silver mining town. The two-story brick structure that looks like a Roman cross was once Cochise County's jail, and included courtrooms and offices for the sheriff, treasurer, and board of supervisors. Built in 1882, it now houses exhibits that describe life for the miners, cattlemen, and pioneers who built Tombstone. Exhibits include a tax license for the operation of a brothel, a replica of the original gallows that stood in the courthouse courtyard, and many examples of firearms owned and used by the pioneers during the mining boom. The site offers numerous shaded picnic areas.

Very interesting and we'll put together. We were there on the 60 the anniversary of it being a state park. They even had cake...lol. great exhibits and friendly staff. Is definitely a must see place in Tombstone.
Lots of history. I found it fun just to walk in a building that old. My kids especially loved the staircase and ringing the bells. There is a scavenger hunt available for the kids. Return entry allowed all day with ticket purchase.
Original courthouse from the late 1800's. Some great history... you can't go wrong visiting Tombstone. Plan at least a 2 day stay!
I had a unforgettable time in tombstone as a whole. Great for family's and singles.
Love history...This whole town gives you a sense of history, but the courthouse is awesome.
