Owner description: Welcome to the Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park. Built in 1882 in the shape of a Greek cross, this two-story Victorian structure once housed the offices of the Sheriff, Recorder, Treasurer, Board of Supervisors, Jail, and Courtrooms of Cochise County. Today this 12,000 sq.Ft. Courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory. The park includes a museum, exhibits, a gift shop, restrooms and shaded picnic areas. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Cash. Museum is open daily from 9:00am- 5:00pm. Stop in for an interesting tour and/or the perfect gift!

The court house architecture is grand, stunning and a bit unexpected after seeing the Earp homes and historic shops on Allen Street. This elegant brick and stone building towers over nearby architecture. Inside there are interesting exhibits and descriptions of what life was like at the turn of the century. Well worth a visit - check opening hours upon arrival in Tombstone.

We had a chance to go through the old courthouse in Tombstone while visiting during Wyatt Earp Days. It is a cool old building to go through and is worth going through. It is a great piece of history to tour.

The history of the community is well presevered here at the Tombstone Court House. There is a small charge but if you are into western history it's well worth the price.

Not only is the courthouse itself worthy of a visit, but the artifacts and history inside make the admission worthwhile. A great example of "you get what you pay for".
