It didn’t cost anything to enter the newspaper. But it was interesting to see how the newspapers were made way back when.

The Epitaph was a neat little old west newspaper museum. We saw the old newspaper presses and got a copy of the paper that was printed the day after the shooting at the O.K. Corral.

Looking back into history. Old time printing press, replicas of newspapers from Earp's days. It was very nice.

A visit to the print shop is included in your $10 ticket to the OK Corral shootout. The museum has well maintained 19th century printing presses and provides a free copy of the Tombstone paper. Definitely a needed stop on your visit to Tombstone

Worth the look just to see how old style printing done but the life of Clum even more interesting and his accomplishments both here and later in Alaska

This is/was the local newspaper for Tombstone. Many framed newsprint referencing the history of Tombstone and surrounding area.

Bisbee AZ, about 25 miles southeast of Tombstone or Benson about 30 miles North of Tombstone would be the closest. The next closest I believe would be at Whetstone, close to Ft. Huachuca. Then of course is the Airport at... More
