Boothill GraveyardTombstone, AZ
Called " Tombstone Cemetery ", it was the burial place for the towns pioneers and was used as such until sometime around 1884, when the community cemetery was opened as a burial place. Because of the many violent of the early days the cemetery became known as Boothill Graveyard. It is possibly a true symbol of this roaring mining town of the early 1880's. Buried here are outlaws with their victims, suicides, and hangings, legal and otherwise, along with the hardy citizens and refined element of Tombstone's first days. So much of the good and so much of the bad of early Tombstone lies buried here, and over the graves of both is growing-- the true crucifixion thorn.
