Tombstone began in 1877 when Mr. Ed Schieffelin, who was willing to brave Apache territory, searched and found a rich strike of silver in the San Pedro Valley. He named his claim "Tombstone" after soldiers from Fort Huachuca said that the stone he would find someday would be his tombstone for venturing into Apache land. Soon with the discover of silver this strike brought in more prospectors, saloon keepers, ladies of the evening, gamblers, and outlaws. Once a camp, became a boomtown overnight. Sadly, within eight years time, it's heyday was soon approaching an end. Tombstone experienced two devasting fires and way too many shootings. The riches moved on as well as the town folk. Still it survived, and now we still get to peek into the past.
