Cochise Cowboy Treasure Hunt Clues
An Army scout rode east one day to see what he could find
Some gold or maybe silver in some lost ole ‘cussed mine
Here he made his fortune, and then travelled the world o’er
He died in his miner’s cabin, with samples of gold ore
Near the mouth of this canyon were the first homes
A statue stands near there pointing where they should roam
Many Murals adorn this town
The main road runs East and West
Find the one with Riders on High
And you will complete the Quest
Tucked in among the boulders, this museum shares the tales
Of native American Indians who followed many trails
From Alaska, South America, and over this great land
Here you’ll find the remnants and the history of many bands.
(Open only Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 am—4:00 pm)
In 1887, copper mines expanded fast
Here you find the open pit, but there were also shafts
Near the shaft, you’ll find a stone that tells you what was mined
And here, the Cochise Cowboy will soon tell you what to find.
Not too far from the lake that is dry
Two Springs supported those who came by
Stages would relay, shop keepers would sell
But that old Demon whiskey their ending would tell
It was called Descanso, a haven of rest
Serving water to cowboys and America’s best
Once a short-term stop on the Butterfield route
But came to an end when the train tracks bagged out
Next to the Mexican border sets a quiet but bustling town
There you will find a building 5-stories from top to ground
1907 is stamped on its wall, G Ave is in its address
Was named for a famous treaty between Mexico and the US
A monument stands near where over the river two bridges crossed.
The “Battle of the Bulls” was here. Some men injured but none were lost.
Open for 138 years! One of the longest operating stores in Arizona. Warren Earp and Geronimo shopped here. Now I have a facelift and new ownership - just waiting for you to visit.
Known as the “Gateway to the Land of Cochise” this was a major shipping point for cattle, gold, silver and copper ore. The Southern-Pacific (S&P) Railroad established a key railhead here in 1880, as a crossing point for the San Pedro River.

After Tombstone’s fame, the Soto Bros. came and founded this general store
In a rip-roaring cowboy town it would be, right next to millions in ore
The Alvord gang including “Three Fingered Jack” were regular customer there
But the town and the store would eventually chill without a hope and a prayer
The Clantons lived by the river
They had a sordid past
Most of the ruins are in crumbles
This corner was built to last
An Adobe building that didn’t burn down,
It still stands near one end of a town,
Where singers and sinners and gamblers Yahoo,
Would leave what they garnered from tunnel and slough.
