The rarest Tombstone photos known to exist is now on display at the museum. A 5 X 7" photo of the "Cow Boys" all together mounted on their horses. The Clanton boys, the McLaury brothers, Billy Claiborne and a few other notorious cowboys pose for C. S. Fly’s camera. The only other known picture of Billy Clanton was taken in his coffin.
Also featured in the museum are many mining artifacts and photos - which was Tombstone’s reason for existing. Ed Scheiffelin founded the Tombstone Mine in 1878. By 1879 the boom was on and people rushed to the area hoping to find their bonanza. Wyatt Earp loved the mining industry and pursued it all his life. His last mine, "The Happy Days" was located near Parker, Arizona. Many relics from the mine and his camp are on display at the museum.
This museum has now been open a year and a half and is a non-profit corporation. It has been used by the History Channel for 2 programs and we have just recently been featured on a PBS program. An original 1900 ledger records guest’s addresses (which represent just about every country in the world) along with their comments, which range from an exuberant "Awesome!" to lengthy and detailed praises.
