Truly a Historical American Landmark, Tombstone is America's best example of our 1880 western heritage, which is well preserved with original 1880's buildings and artifacts featured in numerous museums and re enacting the old timers' daily life.

Today Tombstone is a tourist town which made famous by the days of lawlessness and violence, climaxed with the infamous Earp-Clanton battle, fought near the rear entrance of the O.K. Corral, on October 26, 1881.

Originally Tombstone was a silver and gold mining town before rising underground waters forced suspension of operations. During World War I, Tombstone was a major producer of manganese for the government. In World War II, Tombstone was extracting lead for the cause.
