A stroll through any museum is a walk back in time. What separates Benson Area Museum from many others is the rich history here in southeastern Arizona.
Everyone knows the story of Tombstone, "the town too tough to die." What many don't know is that Benson, Arizona, just a little more than twenty miles north of Tombstone, was the railroad hub for this part of the state, vital to the growth of a young Tombstone and surrounding areas. And the city of Benson has much history in its own right.
