If you're a reader and a history buff, you'll enjoy this bit of history. I found it interesting and fascinating. Couldn't even imagine how much time it actually took to produce a newspaper back then. One of the best FREE places to tour and check out. Our family enjoyed reading the history and learning about printing papers. Hope you enjoy... More

The museum was small but contained a lot of old relics from printing in the late 19th century. Additionally, if you go to the gunfight at the OK Corral first, they will give you a card to trade in here for a free newspaper.

There it's a bit of history here and some of the souvenirs are a couple of $ cheaper. They have a few other historical newspapers for only a few dollars. Some cool t shirts also.

A very interesting museum (free) with a look into the old Tombstone. You can even subscribe to today's Epitaph published monthly with great articles on the past.

When you buy tickets for the OK Corral Museum and show they include a voucher for a free newspaper reporting on the shootout. It includes other interesting articles and advertisements of the period. It's certainly worth the visit. Seeing the old presses and the process of printing newspapers back in the 1880's is like taking a step back through time.... More

The Epitaph has an uncanny feeling of being back in 19th century early 20th century. If you visit the OK Corral gift shop first, you'll be given a voucher to receive a free newspaper article of one of the famous cowboys. Great place to visit.

Everyone who bought a ticket to the gunfight at the OK Corral received a coupon for a free newspaper. The place itself was like a little mini-museum --free of charge!-- and the newspapers were quite interesting. Apparently they have quite a following of yearly subscribers.

The site has historic value showing the equipment used during the 1880s time period. As part of the OK corral gunfight show a free newspaper is given out from the site
