The newspaper in all the towns in that era was so important to the towns people. We went back in time for a short time and it was worth the visit.

The history of the American West in print. Static displays of antique printing press and informative video of the printing process. Reproductions of historic editions available for purchase as well as subscriptions available...yep...it is still in circulation.

If you are a journalism enthusiast you will enjoy seeing the old printing presses and equipment. The room is full of stories of how the printing press was brought to Tombstone and how the history of the town was preserved.

This museum was included in the OK Corral package. Interesting - but they could probably do more with what they have.

A great potential sadly misapplied, taking a historical building and setting and recently doubling the number of shelves for cheap and poorly researched books and tourist kitsch, and they don't even publish a paper, like they say, but students from UA or Arizona State do way far away on campus, either never visiting Tombstone or do phone interviews on stories...

We stopped in the get the tombstone ok corral paper. The staff told us it was fine to bring our dog inside to cool off. We were grateful because it was really getting hot. Most of the other shops were not dog friendly. However the shop at boothill was also dog friendly.
