Tombstone Arizona - Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday
FEATURED: Tombstone's Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday

Founded by Ed Schieffelin when he was prospecting and staked his claim naming it Tombstone when he discovered silver and ore. His friends had told him he would find his tombstone if he went off in the desert from Camp Huachuca. Instead, he founded Tombstone. In 1880 the first railroad from Tombstone to Tucson was complete and millions of dollars of silver and gold traveled the rails.

This new mode of travel and the mines of gold and silver drew a large new population of residents. In 1881 Tombstone's population was between 6,000 and 7,000. The town got electricity in 1902 and has survived the ups and downs of time. Today tourism is the main attraction. It is truly "The Town Too Tough to Die" and reconstructs itself with time.

Many Hollywood movies have been filmed there and books written. It has wonderful historical tours and its friendly residents are just waiting to share their love for Tombstone, and the history of America's Wild West.
