You’ve Never Seen A Cemetery Quite Like This One In Arizona
If there’s any place in Arizona that is filled with tales of the Old West, Tombstone would have to be it. The boomtown turned ghost town has seen an incredible number of characters walk its streets over the decades and it is even the final resting place for some 300 former residents.
