1881The first business in Tombstone was opened on this corner by J.B. Allen. In 1879 it was purchased by Phillip Smith who opened the Pioneer Store and an agency of the Pima County Bank within the store. When Cochise County was established, Smith changed the name to the Cochise County Bank and erected a new adobe building. The interior boasted black walnut furnishings and a burglar proof safe with a time lock. After Smith went bankrupt, it became Cochise Hardware & Trading; Bunker Hill Mining Co.; the Wolcott Department Store from 1886 to 1917 and then Tombstone Commercial Co. In approximately 1945 it became a Medical Clinic and Hospital and remained so until the mid 1960s. In later years it has housed the Chamber of Commerce and the Tombstone Visitor's Center. This is the original 1881 building, still serving the Tombstone Community.
