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.

Costs only 3 dollars to see this graveyard. We took our time, roughly one hour, and visited all graves with information sheet about many persons buried here. Some stories really interesting, some not. But overall worth visiting.

Visited the Boot Hill Graveyard with my sister and her best friend from out of town on a Monday. This Graveyard used to be free, but it is still worth the $3.00 charge. We took in all of the tombstones, reading the information on them....More

Worth a visit to see the graves of the Clantons etc killed by Wyatt Earp and brothers. Many other interesting graves with their history but also many 'unknown' which was disappointing. On the outskirts of Tombstone so can't miss it if visiting from the Tucson...More

We walked among the people who founded, lived and died in Tombstone Arizona. We had visited many of the attractions in town and came to view the final resting place of the people we had heard about and the stories of their lives in Tombstone....More

A must stop if in Tombstone, AZ. I personally wasn't impressed, but if you are a western history buff it would probably be more of interest. Not expensive, only $3 so I don't feel ripped off either.

This graveyard is very cool however, the day we went was so hot and because they had so much rain this year, they gnats were horrible.

Such an experience being able to view history and how people died and were killed in the 1800s. Enjoyed seeing all the old epitaphs and seeing the Clantons and Mclaurys resting place. $3 donation for the walking tour map and well worth it.
