Description: Welcome to the Larian Motel. Tombstone Arizona lodging at its best! Built in 1957, the Larian Motel is a landmark in its own right. Continually providing a level of service and "Western Hospitality" to our guests, that usually exceeds their expectations. We are located centrally, "in the heart" of Tombstone's historic district. You may enjoy walking just a block or so to historic attractions such as: O.K. Corral and Historama, Crystal Palace Saloon, Big Nose Kate's Saloon, Tombstone Court House, Bird Cage Theatre, The Rose Tree Museum, as well as several other Souvenir Shoppes, Saloons and Museums.
Tombstone's "Mother Lode of Silver" was hidden in the central area of the San Pedro Valley. Prospector Ed Schieffelin found it and the rush was on. This valley was also the ancestral home of the great Apache Nation, giving birth to such great Apache warriors as Cochise and Geronimo. Today it is home to the ruins of Ft. Bowie (the U.S. Army outpost guarding Apache Pass), Chiricahua Mountains (land of stand-up rocks), Ft. Huachuca established in 1877 and home of the famous "Buffalo Soldier" detachment of the U.S. Army as well as Bisbee, an historic copper and turquoise mining town.
Certainly Tombstone Arizona has had more articles and books written about its history than all of the other towns of the west put together. Hollywood has told and retold the story of "The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral" and made movies about its colorful citizens such as the Earps, Clantons and McLaurys, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson and Texas John Slaughter to name a few. No wonder that Tombstone Arizona has become to many "The Mecca of American Western History".
Today, visitors to Tombstone Arizona are rewarded with a host of many original buildings and authenticity that others can only try to recreate, at best. No small wonder that, in spite of all the misfortune that happened to Tombstone, it remains today mostly intact as "The Town that is a Museum - The Museum that is a Town".
