Artifacts and memorabilia celebrating our most famous frontier character and former resident—the dentist, gambler and gunfighter who went by the name Doc Holliday, are in the lower level of what is now Bullock’s Western Wear store. In 1887, this site was the ornate Hotel Glenwood, where Doc drew his last breath.

On display is the notorious derringer—which as legend has it—was gifted to Doc by his paramour Bignose Kate. You’ll see the only remaining wooden beam and original stone walls of the Hotel Glenwood, lone remnants of the 1945 fire that destroyed the rest of the building.

Also featured are numerous photos and an original charcoal drawing of John Henry “Doc” Holliday. Other displays represent the period in which he lived, as well as the Western legacy spawned by the O.K. Corral Gunfight, of which he was a part. There’s a video from historian and portayalist Bob Boyle, representing Doc and providing narrative about his remarkable life.

A block party celebration in honor of Doc’s August 14 birthday is in the planning stages now for 2018, with details forthcoming! So please check back to our website often.
