How did Tombstone get its name?


Located in Cochise County in southern Arizona, the city of Tombstone is probably the most famous and most glamorized mining town in all of North America. According to legend, prospectors Ed Schieffelin and his brother Al were warned not to venture into the Apache-inhabited Mule Mountains because they would only "find their tombstones." Thus, with a touch of the macabre, the Schieffelins named their first silver strike claim Tombstone, and it became the name of the town.
