Join our docents for a history hike at Fairbank, Jan 25, at 1 p.m., to tour an important transportation hub from the silver boom in and around Tombstone. The walk will last approximately 1.5 hours; it entails a quarter mile walk around the town on roads or walkways and a .8 mile (total) walk to the town cemetery down a rough trail, to include a short, rocky, uphill stretch. The tour of the town site will include the restored schoolhouse, the mercantile building, the town cemetery, and other remnants of this historic railroad town. Fairbank was the longest-lasting ghost town along the San Pedro River, with occupation spanning 1881 to 1972. The tour will focus on the many colorful events and personalities of the town. Hike departs from the Fairbank School house. The Fairbank parking area is about .5 mile east of the San Pedro River on Highway 82, be- tween Tombstone and Whetstone. Admission is free, and donations are gratefully accepted. For additional information, please call (520) 417-6960 or (520) 508-4445.
