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.

The mine tour was a blast. The underground itself was beautiful, it was wonderful to learn how much hard work went into actually making these mines, and Carey was the best tour guide we could have possibly hoped for.

Interesting and educational. The guide was knowledgeable and lots of fun. It's an old silver mine that runs right under the town.

Simply put, it's the most authentic place in Tombstone! A 45 minute tour of one of the old silver mines. Everything in the mine is real, no fake crap. A little warning: there are many side tunnels. Most of these have been roped off, but...More

Sure we do! We let people take their dogs on the tour every day. Dogs love it down there, it's nice and cool and no gunfire from reenactments to scare them or stagecoach horses for them to bark at. Generally, the dogs just... More
