Get a taste of the Wild West in Tombstone, Arizona. Just 28 miles from Sandhill Crane Cottage, you will be transported back to the days of Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp, Johnny Ringo, Billy Clanton, and others.
Tombstone was founded in 1877 by a prospector named Ed Schieffelin. Ed was staying at what was then called Camp Huachuca (wa-chu-ka) as part of a scouting expedition against the Chiricahua (chir-i-cow-uh) Apaches. During his
time there he would venture out into the wilderness "looking for rocks", all the while ignoring the warnings he received
from the soldiers at the camp. They would tell him, "Ed, the only stone you will find out there will be your tombstone".
Well, Ed did find his stone. And it was Silver. So, remembering the words of warning from the soldiers, he named his
first mine The Tombstone.
