Overview
More
The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

Very informative! Very interesting. We enjoyed Hunter as a guide- he was personable and funny. We enjoyed seeing the items left behind in the mine and the stories of the life of miners!

A very informative tour of what really sparked the growth of Tombstone. Yes. Yes. There's the gun fight. But take this tour. Well worth understanding the unique history of the area that lays below the ground (and not just what's in Boot Hill). Fairly easy...More

The tour was very interesting. Even though I've been on mine tours before, Forest's knowledge of mine ops made this one particularly interesting. Learned quite a bit which enabled me to gain a better appreciation. Highly recommended!
