Overview

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.

Tour was good. We were the only ones so was a personal tour. Guide was very noligable. Was good until he asked twice for a tip! Left a bad taste!

This short guided tour into an old silver mine really helps you understand the Tombstone experience. Seeing the boom town's saloons and gunfights makes more sense when you learn about the industry that pulled millions of dollars of silver out of the ground. Hunter, our...More

Our second visit to this silvermine, now under new ownership. It’s not too strenuous but not for the claustrophobic. Guided tours only. You learn a lot about the history of the mine and daily life of the miners and the town. Well worth a visit.

My kids loved the tour. Very interesting. Do have to warn that it is very physical. It is easy going down the over 108 feet below the surface but you do have to go back up stairs that high to get out of the mine....More

Interesting bit of history if you're into mining. Good way to escape the sun and heat on a summer day. Kids would enjoy it.

Hi Hunter, I’m still interested in taking my group on the “wild” tour. Can you have your manager email me at my gmail account that is associated with the TripAdvisor account (my account name at gmail)? Thanks, Matt
