Description

The Tombstone Epitaph is Arizona’s oldest newspaper. Today you can explore this famous newspaper’s historic newsroom and print shop. Inspect the original printing press, and see how the Epitaph was printed in the 1880s. Read 1880s news reports of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral®, Tombstone’s Great Fires, and the Apache Geronimo’s surrender. A fascinating display chronicles the life of John P. Clum--the Epitaph’s founder, Tombstone’s Mayor and Postmaster, and good friend of Wyatt Earp. Admission is free to this National Historic Journalism Site. Open daily 9:30 a.m.–5 p.m. (Closed Christmas and Thanksgiving) Subscription: $25/year.
