Boothill Graveyard & Gift Shop
Laid out as a burial plot in 1878. The Boothill Cemetery is the resting place to some of the most notorious outlaws during the western time period. It served as a burial place for many of the town’s first pioneers, but later on down the road it was neglected and almost completely lost. Now it is not just a cemetery, but it is also a tourist area where people come to see some of the outlaws that have been laid to rest there. It truly is one of the quickest ways to see just what happened during the 1880s after the silver boom and when a town called Tombstone was born. Final resting place for the victims of the O.K. Corral battle and the good and bad of Tombstone.
