Get a glimpse of the true old West at Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park. Built in 1882 in the shape of a Roman cross, the two-story Victorian structure once housed the offices of the sheriff, recorder, treasurer, board of supervisors, jail, and courtrooms of Cochise County. Today the 12,000 sq.ft. courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory.
Exhibits portray the authentic history of Tombstone as a frontier silver mining boomtown. Learn about miners, cattlemen and pioneers, and see a reproduction of the courtroom and sheriff's office. Displays include a tax license of operating a brothel and an invitation to a hanging. A replica of the gallows in the courtyard represents where seven men were hanged.
The park includes a gift shop, restrooms and shaded picnic areas.
