A reminder to the people who attempt to visit Shakespeare:
Unescorted, walk-thru visits are not available and not permitted. Schedule a possible daily tour prior to your arrival or from the gate. The fenced boundaries of the town are separate from the thousands of fenced acres of cattle range around the town but is still a part of the Shakespeare property. There are safety and liability concerns when you do not have an escort within all of the property boundaries. There is an abundance of rattle snakes, animals, mine borings and shafts that can cause you injury or death. There is also the current danger of drug mules walking from the Southern Border into the Lordsburg area. You do not want to come across or stop any person walking on the range.
This post serves as a warning that any type of injury or death is your responsibility and the responsibility of your heirs, not the owner or Foundation of Shakespeare. If you are injured there is no one that will hear your calls for help or come to your assistance. You will probably die there.
Unauthorized entrance to the town and surrounding land is not permitted. Trespassing is a criminal offense and will be enforced. Unauthorized removal or destruction of historic items or property will be charged to the fullest extent of many Federal and State laws protecting a National Historic Site.
