Considering how warm Tombstone can get during the summer months, this place is a breath of fresh air. Whether you're a plant person or not, you'll absolutely love the Rose Tree!!!

Really impressive. Didn't know Tombstone had the worlds largest and oldest rose bush. I hear it's in the Guinness book. The flowers don't even look like Roses. Very nice to see.

This is located down one of the side streets but you should make it a point to see this incredible rose tree that has been growing for over 100 years

I stopped here mainly because I saw the word "museum". Inside I found one family's historic, personal belongings, which really helped me imagine the time period. There were a few bedrooms, and various furniture prices and other personal belongings. Very cool. When we stepped outside to see the HUGE rose tree, I really couldn't believe the size of that thing.... More

I was there in early March and it was already blooming. Very impressive. When I first heard it was a rose tree, I thought it would have red roses. They are not. They are small white flowers and smell very nicely. Well worth the $5 to see while you are in Tombstone. After all, it is in the Guiness Book... More

It was absolutely amazing! I know that if this amazing rose were blooming it would have scored an excellent. It was unlike any rose that I have ever seen, Something so unbelievably huge, it seemed almost unreal. I understand that the tree rose blooms in April and they even have a Rose Parade the first weekend of the month. So,... More

We knew we'd be seeing a big rose tree, but good golly, we were not prepared for just how huge the tree would be. I don't think I've closed my mouth yet! Hubby was kind of lukewarm about going, as he has to trim my rose arbor, so roses mean work for him. But he was fascinated with this tree... More

The historical artifacts belong to a family who lived in Tombstone for over 4 generations! One docent is a former history teacher who goes to great lengths to ensure an informative and interesting experience for the visitor as well as infusing some humor to make it fun. The owners still live in Tombstone. We thought we were going to see... More
