After lunch, our next stop was the Tombstone Epitaph Museum (newspaper) which was free and we could view all the different types of printing presses, type setters, and a description of how each was used.

Interesting reading the paper that came out after the Gunfight at the OK Corral. An article that is still debated today as just how authentic the reporting was.

Wonderful to see history kept up and displayed well. A chance for a step into the history of the west without too much makeup to hide the truth. Nice to see angles on some of the stories of the area without alteration

Typical second tier attraction at a place known for something else. Interesting background on the former owner of the Epitaph.

Very interesting to see the old printing presses and to imagine how recent it really was that we used this for our news. Some old reproduced articles to read as well. A nice break from all the "tourist shops" BObK
