We were told that people buy it and it is an actual graveyard, they moved some of the graves to build a road thru it, I'm just saying what I was told, it was different, the souvenir shop was packed and not as impressive as Tombstone itself! If it wasn't for my health insurance I'd move there!

Really wild how all these people were buried here and had rocks placed over their graves. Wonder what the remains look like now with all the plants growing from the site

Boot Hill Cemetary. Ive been going for 40 years and can still feel the electricity in the air. Great place to close out your visit with. be sure to leave a donation to help keep the place going.

Whether you start here, or end here on your visit to Tombstone, you won't be disappointed. Definitely visit the McClaury's and the Clanton's grave, but learning about others who passed while in Tombstone is interesting also.

No trip to Tombstone is complete with out a trip to Boot Hill. The site is well cared for by the new care takers that are doing their best to undo the damages done by former 'care takers'. They simply ask for a three dollar donation as you enter though a a quant and tasteful gift shop. For your three... More

Interesting. Even though this is not an original site. The history is preserved and it was fun to explore, compare and speculate.

Spent the day in tombstone, last stop was the boothill graveyard. This is a walk and look yourself. Read the headstones. I would have liked to had a pamphlet of some kind to know more about the plots. My child really enjoyed it. I also liked that it had a mister to cool off after being in the open sun.

As a huge Earp, Holliday/Tombstone fan, coming here was a dream come true. My family loves history and this was a great place to go explore. No charge to visit the cemetery but it's worth the $3 to buy a map. The Clanton/McLaury graves are easy to locate, but some of the others we needed the map. Not as many... More

Some will whine about the "new" wooden tombstones (they are lovingly replaced every few years), but the fact that this place is even still around after Tombstone's decline is amazing. Very well maintained and fascinating history. Gets hot in the summer, but the upside was that we had the whole cemetery to ourselves.

Be very respectful if you do there after all they are dead and most of their causes are from the gun fights.. Its an incredible place that everyone must see..
