Very old history, learned a lot about the people that were once part of the town, and why they rest in peace in there

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

One of the few things free to visit and you'll spend more time than you think in here for good reason, it's fascinating history all about.

A fun 1/2 hour to learn about how newspapers were originally produced, as well as all the tales of Wyatt Earp and the shootout in Tombstone. The newspaper is still being produced.

You MUST visit this location. This is now a museum of sort, taking you back in time to the 1800's when it was a newspaper. This newspaper reported on the shootout at the Ok Corral among many other things. This is definitely a family (and historian) must to see. The inside contains many historical items.

Simple, free and informative little museum/exhibit which puts across the intricacies of the printers trade in a small town publication started up in the 19.
