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.

  • its a must see for the history of tombstone. its worth stopping by. I only went to see the gallows. its history 
  • They have a gallows! That's where they hung prisoners sentenced to death in the wild west. Check out the courthouse and see the history in person.
  • This is a step back in history to one of the great placemarkers in Western history. Next to the courthouse is a gallows, which is a little chilling.
  • It's a bit expensive for what you get ($20 for a family of 4 if I remember right) but its a nice place to look through
  • It is worth the money, time and pictures to see this place.
  • Very cool architecture and history!
