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.

See where the Clantons are buried and a lot of other colorful characters. Be sure to read all the tombstones very interesting .

$3 admission per person to wander among reconstructed gravestones not as interesting as you might think, little in the way of fancy death poetry.

The history that is told from a graveyard was a total enjoyment. It was a cool day when we were there and would have liked to sp no more time.

Assuming the people rumored to be buried there are actually buried there, then it's worth a quick visit on your way out of or into town.

The graveyard consists of several rows of graves with headstones and rocks marking the grave locations. A guide shows who is buried in each grave and how they got there (killed, sick, fell off horse, etc.) The question we had is how authentic is the...More

I don't know if the gravestone markers are original or just made up, but many of them are fun to read anyway. The $3 entrance fee is OK but for what you get, acceptable. We had a good time and enjoyed ourselves until it started...More

Walking through this little cemetary was sad but worth the small admission fee. Just going through the rows and reading the names of the citizens and how they died. I only wish I had brought some flowers.
