The Good Enough Mine is a wonderful attraction that you should visit while in tombstone. In 1877 Ed Schieffelin filed his first mining claim and named it Tombstone after what people had told him he would find there. Ed got the last laugh and the rest is history. People journeyed from all over to collect their riches here and Ed’s second claim The Good Enough Mine allows you to experience what they did and recognize the hardship they endured.
The Good Enough Mine has a number of tours depending on your time and physical ability. We experienced the family friendly hour tour that takes you through a quick but thorough tour of the mine without too much climbing or struggle. The tour is really cool, and you get to shoot through different man made passages, where men risked their life on a daily basis for the dream they had set out to Tombstone to accomplish. Not only do you get to see a ton of original tools and equipment they used, but the tour guide provides great description of the life the men lived and this really makes the experience come alive.
While inside the mine you get a chance to see different minerals and ore veins that are simply amazing to view. While it was chilly the day we were here the mine stays at a cool 50 degrees and must make it really nice during the Summer time and an activity that gets you out of that dessert heat. I will definitely be back to adventure much deeper into the mine and get the much more elaborate experience on our next visit. I do highly recommend you at least take a visit and experience the family friendly tour and get a real understanding of why Tombstone is even here in the first place.
