Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park
Built in 1882 in the shape of a Roman cross at a cost of nearly $50,000.
This museum is definitely one of the best stops in Tombstone. $5 entrance fee and we all felt it was well worth it.
Seven men were hung from the gallows. These were not the original which were burned in one of the two huge fires in Tombstone.
The law library
The courtroom which has the original judge’s bench, jury chairs and prisoner’s box.
Does anyone have any idea what this is? The information person didn’t know.
I don’t have much of an eye for designs in photographs but I really liked this one that I took.
Our final stop.
Because of the many violent deaths of the early days, the cemetery became known as Boothill Graveyard. It is a true symbol of this roaring mining town of the early 1880s. Buried here are outlaws with their victims, suicides, and hangings, legal and otherwise, along with the hardy citizens and refined element of Tombstone's first days.
Those resting here have a gorgeous view of the valley.
And I am definitely ready to get out of town.
