Obviously not the original headstones but still quite poignant to read and obviously not many died peacefully in their beds!! As it's free can't knock it!

Okay, so maybe I'm the only one who wanted to see actual grave markers from the period? Clearly was an unrealistic hope because the original markers had all been stolen or lost during the years when Boothill wasn't well cared for. So you're pretty much stopping to see the site of the graves, which is kind of cool. The little... More

I guess I was expecting original headstones, but I'm sure they would have disintegrated over the years. This is a free attraction, but like some of the other reviewers I'd be skeptical about the authenticity of the graves. With that said, it's free, it's right along the road to/from Tombstone so you stop and check it out.

The tombstones are not the originals which is the only reason I am giving 4 rather than 5 stars. Otherwise, it was free and reading the gravestones was really neat and gave some idea about how difficult life was at the time. For $3 you can buy a guide to the grave yard which was neat, but the guide is... More

What u first enter is the gift shop. An attendant asks u to sign the guest log. A map is provided of the graveyard showing the main players of that era if you seen the movie Tombstone. Very cool as you read some of the headstones and the famous desperados buried there.

First off this is one of the few tours you can do for free, with that said it's worth checking out and donating a little money to help with general upkeep . Interesting to walk around and pay your respects. I have to say this was one of my favorite stops in tombstone.

For a free attraction this was worth the visit. I did expect a little more, but was not disappointed in the visit. Was interesting to walk around the cemetery and see the names and how they passed on. Worth the stop.

My wife & I objected to what we found in Tombstone because it's largely a tacky tourist spot rather than a history buff's window to an interesting era in western history. Other than the courthouse, the Bird Cage, & Boothill, you'll likely be disappointed. Boothill is listed as a national historic landmark. That makes it authentic enough for me. Still,... More

I give it an average score not because I do not appreciate history and the significance of the work the volunteers do, but because what has changed. When I visited the site 5 years ago there were a lot more “known” graves vs. the now “unknown”. Makes me wonder if it is all a hoax or if they truly know... More
