World's Largest Rose Bush

This was a wonderful, beautiful thing to see. It was in bloom; white roses everywhere. They even sell seedlings from this bush. [annette, 04/05/2014]

World's Largest Rosebush

No visit to Tombstone would be complete without a visit to the World's Largest Rosebush, or a viewing of the best darn presentation of the history of Tombstone --the Historama. This rotating diorama with animated parts turns while the movie screen is down, showing you in even more detail how thrilling the town's history was, and the show is narrated by the one and only Vincent Price. The most dramatic re-enactment of the death of an Earp (I forget which Earp) imaginable, when the wooden Earp's head goes *clunk* on the pool table. Truly inspiring.
