St. Pauls is the oldest Episcopal church in Arizona with its first service held on June 18th, 1882. The Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. It is the only Gothic Revival adobe church in the world — built of hand-formed, sun-dried adobe bricks and covered with stucco against the monsoon rains. It is located on Safford and 3rd Street, in the heart of Tombstone.
