Every time I visit Arizona I include a return to Tombstone and the BirdCage Theater. While the rest of the town has set its sights on the ever increasing crowds of tourists descending on this community, the BirdCage remains a discentigrating old theater chucked full of things --real things -- that serve to provide us a sense of a bygone era, be it myth or history. There has been no attempt to repair, polish or preserve this fascinating collection of theater (and other objects) memorabelia, only to allow the theater's visitors to witness the disappearance of the Bird Cage into the annals of the history of the"Old West."
When I lived in Arizona or now, when I return to visit, I ALWAYS head for Tombstone and visit the Bird Cage. Remarkable place. You need several hours to really go through and see and read everything. Truly the Old West as anyone could imagine it. Imagine seeing exactly what Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp saw and how the people from that time were entertained. Got several 'weird' photos from past visits...
On a very recent visit to Tombstone, my wife and I received arecommendation to take the Ghost Tour at the Bird Cage Theater. I honestly felt like I was a participant in a spine tingling Ghost Hunter Investigation! Everything seen and experienced was real. My wife captured photos of orbs and a face of someone in a mirror, but there was not any person there to have made that reflection! A big plus to this all was the knowledge and friendliness of our guide, Nova. Through her experience and research, she was able to answer all questions and provide an interesting insight into a true chapter of the history of the American West.
Visitors and employees of the Bird Cage Theater have reported seeing the spirits of former prostitutes and men in cowboy hats. Some claim to have been touched and pushed by unseen forces.
At night, the sounds of laughter, yelling and music have been heard, as though the parties of the Old West were still raging. Many have claimed to see the visage of a man in black wearing a visor
pacing across the stage...
