Not terribly exciting, but if you're into journalism you may get more out of it. Oldest still publishing newspaper in Tombstone. See the news articles about the gunfight at the OK Corral and the subsequent trial.

As journalism junkies, my wife and I planned to stop in anyways - but this was part of a combo ticket with the OK Corral and that made it all the better. A great way to pick up a little more information about Tombstone's colorful history.

There was a display about John Clum who lead an interesting live--was an Indian Agent who captured Cochise, a newspaper publisher, the mayor of Tombstone, supporter of Wyatt Earp, and who actually met again with Wyatt Earp in Nome, Alaska, of all places.

The old newspaper offices contain a fascinating history of printing, and more especially about the history of the Epitaph. Entry is free and there is a small gift shop. Copies of some of the special additions of the Epitaph, including the OK Corral shooting, can be purchased.

Being a part of the modern world anything from the past fascinates me, especially if it's from the good old western era.

We got a free newspaper voucher that came with our O.K. Corral tickets so we stopped in to the Epitaph. We were pleasantly surprised at the equipment and machinery they used to print back then. It seems to have been painstaking work to produce a good product, but was well worth the efforts to them. And we, later generations, are... More
