Overview
More
The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

We really enjoyed the tour of the mine that started Tombstone. There are a lot of steps and uneven terrain, of course, so anyone with mobility problems should probably skip this one. Definitely recommend to everyone else.

Drew was very knowledgeable (thank you for your military service). Enjoyed the stories. I didn’t care for the gazillion steps back up.

Would highly recommend this tour! It is difficult to get a feel for the real origin of Tombstone without this experience. It was silver mining that supported this booming town in the desert. We took the mine tour on December 10, 2017. Our guide, Hunter,...More

This short guided tour into an old silver mine really helps you understand the Tombstone experience. Seeing the boom town's saloons and gunfights makes more sense when you learn about the industry that pulled millions of dollars of silver out of the ground. Hunter, our...More
