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.

Really enjoyed the walk through the mine. Took a little time, but was an easy walk. Guide did a lot of informative narration during the walk, so you came away with more knowledge about the miners and the work they did.

Located at the end of the block and near some of the best food in town. Love the hard hats. The tour guide was very informative, funny and approachable. He made it very interesting. Lots of low ceiling areas to watch out for but he made sure everyone was aware. Great tour! It was raining but it was warmer in... More

The tour goes into the mine and explores the different scenarios a miner from old times had to deal with. The guide was informative and inteesting. We learned some great history about the mine and the area. It is a great way to beat the heat for 30-45 minutes!

It was a nice and cool with a short walk into the old mine. The tour guide was friendly and entertaining. It is a very interesting visit. Some folks were wondering about why we were required to wear a hardhat; watch your head. Some of the ceilings are a bit short; however, there was nothing overly strenuous about going down... More

We really enjoyed our mine tour. Our tour guide, Mongo, was very informative and entertaining. We got to hike pretty far down into the mine. (Nice and cool inside). Quite a few steps coming back up so not for those who can't hike a couple flights. Tour was about 45 minutes for $15 ($12 for seniors, not sure for kids).

My wife, son and I went together on this underground mine tour. We were part of a group of about a dozen tourists on a Wednesday morning. The tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable! You are underground for approximately a half hour and the walk is very easy if you're in reasonable shape. We all learned something we hadn't known... More

The Good Enough Mine is a wonderful attraction that you should visit while in Tombstone. Back in 1877, Ed Schieffelin filed his first mining claim. He named it Tombstone after what the naysayers told him he would find if he went there. Ed got the last laugh and the rest is history. People journeyed from all over in the hopes... More

What an adventure for the four of us, my son, two grandchildren and myself. I felt as if I were transformed and was actually a miner in this silver mine. I knew that I could never have worked there even for 1 hour. Such hardships, such an undertaking and what an appreciation for those who lived in this time. Every... More
