Take walk in the back to see the decades of history! Old printers, old newspapers preserved from Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday and the boys! Must see!!!

It was a small building and you could see how they printed the newspapers then. There was a lot of reading (too much for me) and the old machines to look at. It was an ok place to see.

The building is one of the original and looks. They have old printing presses and type on display. If you like old newspaper then this is the place for you. The host was quite nice and explained anything you wanted to know. Plus, it's free!

You can buy some copies of newspapers of Tombstone events and personalities such as the shootout at the OK Corral with testimony from the surviving participants and the Life and Times of J. P. Clum who was the mayor of... More

We strolled through and looked at all the old presses and articles on everything from the shoot-out to the trial and all the events in town through the years. It was very interesting to see how the owner of the paper was such a traveler and... More

First off, its free to enter. However, its not the original building from the 1880's. Most of the equipment is more modern from a later era. The singular interesting thing to us was the original printing press from Wyatt Earp's time, which printed all the newspapers back then, including the Shoot Out at the OK Corral. If you go to...

So much history in Tombstone and this is part of that history. The employee at the Epitaph gave us some additional information. All of this history is so fascinating
