Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

The Bird Cage Theater

The wickedest night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast, The Bird Cage Theater was the site of 26 murders. Now, the museum is stocked full of the living and the dead. Sightings of a ghost dog are common here.

The OK Corral

Site of the most famous gunfight of all time. Phantom gunshots are heard emanating from nowhere, and blurry apparitions of legendary cowboys like Wyatt Earp appear in photographs taken by curious travelers.

Big Nose Kate’s

Named after Doc Holiday’s girlfriend, this saloon was once a grand hotel and is haunted by a handyman who disappeared in the silver mines one day and never returned.

The Hauntings of Tombstone

“The only thing you’ll find out there is your Tombstone,” a warning and curse not heeded by its founder, Ed Schieffelin, who created the tiny desert town in search of riches buried deep underground. Despite his naysayers, Schieffelin struck it rich, and one of the Wild West’s most infamous towns was born.

 

All manner of vice and sin followed as thousands shuffled into the dusty mining town to pursue their hopes and dreams. With them came the saloons, brothels, and hotels that still tower over the empty streets. One of the most famous shootouts in American history took place at the OK Corral in 1881. It was not the only one of its kind, and many ended with bodies in pools of blood.

 

Tragedy struck in 1882 when the miners hit the water table, and the town relied on pumps to keep its economy going. A devastating fire destroyed the pumps in 1886, and all has been quiet since, at least for the living. The ghosts of the short-lived, fast-paced bed of sin are now some of the most famous and frequently sighted in Arizona.

 

The Most Haunted Places in Tombstone, AZ

 

Although the streets of Tombstone are small, the spirits of the Wild West and their homes are expansive. Boothill Graveyard is one of Tombstone’s biggest and most haunted attractions. Many visitors capture unexplainable persons in their photos, even in the middle of the day. Crystal Palace Saloon, where roulette wheels spin themselves, has more than a few hanger-oners from the old days.

 

The Buford House, once a private home for one of the most powerful men in tombstones, is haunted by the many family members who died there. The home activity around the home intensified when their bones were discovered in the basement and haven’t ceased since. But it is not the only place of accommodation full of phantoms. The Bordello B & B lives up to its name and is brimming with unexplainable sights and sounds.

Reasons to Take the Tombstone Ghost Tour

Icon
You want to get to know the real Tombstone

For the most part, the majority of what is known about Tombstone is based on Hollywood’s interpretation. While factual info ... rmation can be found in literature and historical museums, those who are not history buffs may only know what’s portrayed on the big screen. What better way to get to know the real Tombstone than with an authentic tour through the town itself?



You don’t have to be into westerns to appreciate the sites and information you’ll receive on this ghost tour. You just have to be ready to be blown away by some of the stories you’ll hear and be ready to have a great time.

You’re a fan of westerns.

You don’t have to be fully into westerns but hey, maybe you are! If westerns are your thing, you’re in the right place. T ... he buildings you’ll see in your tour of Tombstone are some of the original ones that were built in the 1800s. While they may no longer be used for what they were intended, you’ll get to hear their origin stories, the darkness that helped build them, and the spirits that still frequent them.



This won’t be like anything you’ve seen on TV. The stories you’ll hear are real and raw and feature some characters that are a bit darker than those Hollywood created. Here, you’ll be taken to the real wild west, and it doesn’t get much more real than that.
