Overview
More
Boothill Graveyard was the Tombstone City Cemetery from 1878 to 1884. It was not called Boothill until the 1920s. Its occupants ran the spectrum of all the cultures and nationalities of early Tombstone. Cowboys who "died with their boots on" lie next to housewives, business men and women, miners, gamblers, ladies of the "red-light district" and all the famous and not so famous occupants that contributed to Tombstone's early history. By the 1920s, Boothill had fallen into ruin with many grave markers lost or unreadable. A group of citizens in Tombstone and Cochise County began the task of researching old burial records, consulting with relatives, older residents, and using all means available to identify the occupants and mark the graves properly. The task took several years and the efforts of many to accomplish. This resulted in the graveyard being restored much as it was in the early years when it was the city cemetery.

One of those places you have to visit! Fascinating slice of local history- so much more than the final resting place of those that died at the OK Corral!

There’s a lot of Tombstone history and seeing the graveyard 1st helps when you tour other areas of Tombstone. You will recognize some it the names on the tour from your visit to the graveyard.

Boothill is still a fun, historic place to visit, but, many of the tombstones have been replaced by semi-modern versions that are A) a little too recent looking, and B) all done the same way. The authentic ones are pretty cool, Some of the cheesy...More
