The O.K. Corral, site of the famous gunfight that took place on October 26, 1881. The fight that broke out on this vacant lot lasted only 30 seconds but the legend has lasted for decades.

Many who have walked into or past this lot have claimed to see the apparitions of cowboys (presumably those involved in the gunfight), appearing out of nowhere with guns drawn. Others have also claimed to feel bodily chills or cold spots in this area.

The Buford House, now a bed and breakfast, seems to be the final resting place of Mr. George Buford himself. Apparently, in life, George was in love with a woman named Cleopatra; called Petra for short.

As the story goes, Petra walked home with another man one day and George was enraged. Not long afterward, Petra came to visit George and he fatally shot her twice before turning the gun on himself.

At the Buford House, many have reported the doorbell ringing in the middle of the night. The unexplainable sounds of knocking have been heard on various walls throughout the house. Water faucets have been known to turn on by themselves. Some women who have stayed at the B&B have complained that some unseen hands touched their hair or the back of their necks!

Crystal Palace Saloon

Many claim that the apparition of Big Nose Kate wanders this establishment. According to natives of Tombstone, this saloon was one of Kate’s favorites. Many have reported objects being moved to odd locations during the night. Some have seen gambling wheels begin to spin of their own accord! Many have seen lights go on and off by themselves. Footsteps and voices have been heard all over the building. Also, many full-bodied cowboy apparitions have been reported in various parts of the building.

Strange noises have been reported to come from this famous cemetery at night. Odd lights have been spotted throughout the area after sundown. Many tourists have taken photographs that displayed tons of orbs floating around the entire place. With so many violent deaths, it’s not any wonder that this site would be haunted!

The Red Buffalo stands where the former Campbell and Hatch’s Saloon once stood; the very spot where Morgan Earp was killed in 1882. Before that time, the building was home to the Legends of the West Saloon (How appropriate!).

Footsteps have been heard in the rear of this building. Lights turn on and off and objects are moved to other places. Some have claimed to have been pushed by some unseen force. Many witnesses have spotted the apparition of a woman floating about the place. And, many have claimed to see Morgan Earp standing in the area where he died.

The Red Buffalo
