“Very interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

You feel like you stepped back in history when you go in here. Loved all the newspaper articles from back in the day, and the free copy of the paper from the day after the Gunfight at the OK Corral was great!

“Educational”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

If you like history, visit this attraction. You can see old printing presses. Older children could learn how newspapers were laboriously printed in the past and learn that we used to get news without the internet!

“Pick up a subscription!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

It's hard to believe this newspaper has been in business since 1880. We ordered a yearly subscription to be mailed (one monthly) to Indiana. They also gave us 4 special historical editions; for example one from October 1881 with the O.K. Corral gunfight story,

“Not a must do... but still interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

My father got a kick out of this more then I did but it was still cool to see some of the old equipment used to make the papers and wanted posters around the town.

He bought a few souvenirs, we snapped a few pics, but if you're on a time crunch it's one of those places that could be skipped.

If you're a history buff stop by, if you have kids they probably won't enjoy it.
