The Tombstone Silver Nickel Cabin was named after the Silver Nickel Mining Company, which was a former owner of the property. No mining was done on the property. The home is located on 5 private acres of open desert, on a ranch road, about 2 miles north of Tombstone, off of historic Middle March Road. This was the route originally used by the U.S. Cavalry to travel from Ft. Bowie, Arizona over the Dragoon Mountains to Ft. Huachuca, Arizona during the latter half of the nineteenth century. The home sits atop a gentle sloping hill, with a great view of Tombstone and an amazing panoramic view of nearby mountain ranges. Sit on the front porch and enjoy the serenity of the desert, wildlife and nearby mountains. In the evening, sit around the camp fire & enjoy the spectacular starry skies and the lights of Tombstone. Hike or ride your ATV’s on local ranch roads and trails. Local destinations include historic 100 year old railroad beds, Cochise Stronghold in the Dragoon Mountains and the Coronado National Forest. We are just minutes from Tombstone, but near the middle of nowhere!
