Boot Hill

Superstition Mountain Museum’s Boot Hill Cemetery

As you’re exploring the museum grounds don’t forget to visit Boot Hill, the museum’s own version of an Old West cemetery where gunfighters who died “with their boots on” would be laid to rest. As rough and barren as the other multitude of real cemeteries bearing that name all over the Old West, this plot seeks to tickle your funny bone with epitaphs written for the likes of gunfighter Lester Moore and Sheriff Jack.
