Of the four museums we saw in Tombstone, this was the finest. Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park, the former courthouse of Cochise County Arizona. It was built in 1882, at the height of the Silver mining boom, and today is on the national Register of Historic Places. Bisbee, Arizona, became the county seat in 1929, and the last county offices were moved from Tombstone in 1931.
The museum features many artifacts and professionally done exhibits that depict the history of the town of Tombstone. The historic old building itself is interesting to explore, including the very courtroom from which several cowboys and outlaws were sentenced to hang on the gallows in the courthouse yard. The park also offers picnic tables and public restrooms.
