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.

I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was very informative. Amazing to see how people mined all those years ago. Plus it was nice getting out of the hot Arizona sun to go down in a cool mine.

Kept hearing about this mine while touring Tombstone so we had to check it out. The tour guide did a great job of explaining everything. We enjoyed it immensely and will recommend it to our friends.

We really enjoyed the tour of the mine. Our tour guide was very informative. We all got to wear hard hats too! It's cooler down in the mine than it is at Street level. I highly recommend it.
