Description: The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in...
The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

Mongo the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining, while trying to keep all the kiddos safe. Get a cold drink at the saloon and learn the truth about Tombstone!

The tour is about 45 short minutes long. The tour "guide" was friendly, knowledgeable and had good advice for getting more detail on the silver mining in Tombstone. The book is called Bonanza and Bogasse by Burton Deverre. I'd take the tour again.

We took the 45 minute tour and learned so much about the history of Tombstone in that short period. The 45 minute tour is very easy walking, although there are a lot of steps to get into and out of the mine. Our guide, Patrick, was young but was well versed in the area's history. It was late in the... More

One of my wife's "must do's" at Tombstone was a mine tour. We found this mine by chance and was given a very reasonable price for the 45 minute tour. My wife and I along with our 2 children went on the tour with Mongo as our tour guide. We absolutely loved the tour. It was fun and informative. A... More

We did this trip on our last they as we originally skipped it, but I'm really glad we did. It lasts a bit under an hour and the whole trip is very interesting from the start to the end. You'll get to see some older mining equiptment as well as the mine itself, and although I believe the quality of... More

The guide explains the mine system and takes you through the large sections where great quantities of ore were found. For a first time visitor to such a mine, this is well worth doing and takes just under the hour.
