Ed Schieffelin Monument

As Ed Schieffelin started prospecting for valuable minerals in southern Arizona during the latter half of the 1870s, his friends insisted he would only find his tombstone. They were wrong. During its mining history, mines in Tombstone produced $85 million in silver. Schieffelin died in 1897. This 25-foot-tall monument stands near the spot of his original claim
