Tombstone is said to be the most haunted place in Arizona. The town has a history full of violence, including many shootouts. Residents of Tombstone claim many lingering spirits, including that of Marshal Fred White. The first marshal of Tombstone, White was accidentally shot and killed while attempting to disarm a gunman in October of 1880. He is believed to haunt the street in front of where he was shot, which is also now the location of the Bird Cage Theater.
In addition to frequent violence, Tombstone residents suffered two terrible fires within a year of each other. Both fires claimed many lives due to the crowded saloons and brothels, where it was impossible to evacuate everyone in time. Many of those who died in these fires are said to still haunt the town today, seemingly unaware of the horrific burns across their bodies. Often, people report smelling smoke and burning materials for no apparent reason.
