Lots of history. For $1O you can see three attractions and you get a free newspaper from back then. This was the least interesting part to me.

The Tombstone Epitaph building included original newspaper printing equipment with extensive descriptions for each piece. The display also included pictures from the Alaskan gold rush.

Great little spot to pick up sample papers of news from back in the day. Nice little museum display of antique printing presses and plates. Only takes a few minutes to see but great historical view of printing before social media :)

We stopped in because we got a free copy of a newspaper speaking about the gunfight at the OK Corral. The shop was small and had a couple of old printing presses. Rather unremarkable to my eye

I enjoyed the old printing equipment because that is my line of business and enjoyed seeing it. Worth the short history lesson for anyone

Had to go around the corner to find it. Still it was easy.. very interesting place. Had a local printer on hand to tell the story..I did subscribe to the Epitaph for a Year. Enjoyed reading the paper after I got home.

Not sure how much you can add to a tiny museum like this, but it is worth a visit to see how the media operated at the time. Some interesting tidbits to read and experience once inside.

The clerk was very funny and informative. The information at the Epitaph was enlightening Really did like the free newspapers we received (as part of the walking tour we did).

We went here to get our copy of the day-after-the-gunfight article, which came as part of the OK Corral gunfight re-enactment. We also subscribed to the Epitaph to get monthly history articles and what not -- neat concept.

Bisbee AZ, about 25 miles southeast of Tombstone or Benson about 30 miles North of Tombstone would be the closest. The next closest I believe would be at Whetstone, close to Ft. Huachuca. Then of course is the Airport at... More
