Do not miss this newspaper printing shop, as there is a wealth of information about tombstone history and the specifics of various pioneers. Excellent information on John Clum, who started the newspaper in 1880, and led an interesting and diverse life.

We enjoyed getting an "original" publication from the time of the Earps. They also have a small museum which can be walked through in about 10 minutes, A must see.

A interesting place to learn how printing was done in the west at the end of the 19th century. It was hard work and involved many steps to print a paper. See the old type settings and ink pads as well as the old presses....More

In all the films John Clum, the proprietor of the paper at the time of the O.K. Corral gunfight, was a minor figure. In reality he was so much more. A big surprise.

Without the Epitaph's history, much of what transpired during this time in history wouldn't have been preserved. A must visit to see how it all came to be by this little paper of the day!

The orginal presses were on display. They sure had a hard time getting a paper printed back then. Everything was done by hand. Not anything like modern day. We truly appreciate the opportunity to have been able to see all of the ways printing was...More

Bisbee AZ, about 25 miles southeast of Tombstone or Benson about 30 miles North of Tombstone would be the closest. The next closest I believe would be at Whetstone, close to Ft. Huachuca. Then of course is the Airport at... More
