You really get a feel for what Tombstone must have been like when you walk though this graveyard. Almost every grave has a head board telling you something about the person buried there. There are many "unknowns" and many unfamiliar names who died from being "shot" and, of course, there are the more famous names. The starkness of the stone... More

This place is a great historical visit and is free or you can leave a donation. We spent about 20 minutes walking around and enjoyed the historical value.

Here lies Lester Moore, Shot with 4 slugs from a 44 No less No more.... The colorful descriptions add more to the cemetery experience than just the ruggedness of the place... I was disappointed that they paved main street since I had been there many, many years before... I was there in 2005....We also had photos with shotguns and Dance... More

The one disappointment - however it is free ,so if you have time you have nothing to lose. I myself would not bother again. The tombstones are wood with marker pen names on and I know they are not sure who is buried where.

Very educational and just fun to see. The west was pretty wild then, and the graveyard shows it!! Interesting to learn how they ended up there...

If you love the Old West or just curious, Boothill Graveyard is really stepping in time and reveals the town's turbulent past.

The graveyard tells the real story of Tombstone. The murders, the suicides and hangings. It is an unusual graveyard in the sense that all the graves are covered with stones. There markers are for the most part, Hand written and hand made.

It's interesting to walk through and see the markers (which include how they died, or were killed). Worth the stop. Free to browse. Fun souvenirs.

Yes, it is obvious that the headstones are duplicates and not originals but after years of neglect combined with the Arizona sun, it seems unrealistic to expect the original headstones. That being said, it is very interesting to wander through the graves and realize that so many infamous people are buried here. I would definitely recommend spending $3 for the... More
