Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park, the former courthouse of Cochise County Arizona, contains antiques and hundreds artifacts concerning the history of Tombstone and Cochise County. It's probably (I didn't visit all) the most interesting and for sure the most complete historical exhibit and museum in town.

The building was built in 1882 when Cochise County split off from Pima County in 1881. Tombstone, as the largest town in the county with a population of 8 - 10,000, was chosen as the county seat. In 1929 the county seat was moved to Bisbee where it remains today.

The renovated Courthouse building itself is interesting to explore. It includes the courtroom from which several cowboys and outlaws were sentenced to hang on the gallows in the courthouse yard. There are also restrooms and picnic tables. Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park is open daily 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. The entrance fee is $3 or $4, depends on a season.
