SORT BY Relevancy
We stopped In Tombstone Arizona on the way back from Los Cruces New Mexico. My wife and I had both finished reading a couple of books about Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and the OK Corral.
So we decided to make the detour and go see it
First the Bad News, while the parking is free, any attraction you might want to see charges admission
The Ghost town part of town reminded me to much “Knott’s Berry Farm” and or Calico. I would have preferred a deserted set of buildings and a walking tour
Again I sort of figured it was a tourist place so was not expecting too much
The road in / out of town is heavily patrolled so watch your speed
The Good News
We ate at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” the food was quite good , the service was great , the entertainment was pretty good, and was a neat place to eat and let one’s imagination take over and be there with Doc Holiday, and the others.
My wife and split a brisket Sandwich and a bowl of chili and each had a “Doc Holiday “to drink (Mr. Pub) but hey indulge me
They had a gentleman doing some street dancing for tips that while not western was rather interesting to watch
A lot of the residents are dressed in period clothing which gives the place that western look.
My wife bought some earrings at a Native American store as souvenirs.
Tombstone is a neat place to stop and visit , check off the bucket list, eat at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” and enjoy a couple of hours to break up that LONG I -10 drive BUT I do not foresee it has my favorite destination site yet
Wyatt Earp, The Clanton Brothers, Doc Holiday, The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Tombstone, Arizona and the U.S. Marshals Service are woven into the mythology of the American Wild West. Wednesday, June 11, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is taking a look inside America’s most storied law enforcement agency with a descendent of Marshall Wyatt Earp, Mike Earp. And we’ll be traveling to Tombstone, Arizona, site of the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral to talk with some of the current residents of Tombstone talking to men who are keeping the legends of the wild, wild west alive, including Terry “Ike” Clanton, descendant of the Clantons, Kenn Barrett, the former City Marshal and Chief of Police, and Stephen Keith, known all over town as Doc Holliday.
In his new book U.S. Marshals, Mike Earp, who retired as the third-highest-ranking official in the service, tells the thrilling inside story of today’s U.S. marshals -- America’s oldest law enforcement agency, established in 1789 by George Washington. Giving a detailed account of its colorful history, Earp brings the past to the present in a revealing account of what few people realize is a three decades transformation of the entire structure of law enforcement in America.
Tombstone, Arizona is a historic western city in Cochise County, Arizona, founded in 1879 by Ed Schieffelin in what was then Pima County, Arizona Territory. It was one of the last wide-open frontier boomtowns in the American Old West and the site of the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral fought October 26, 1881 between the outlaw cowboys Billy Claiborne, Ike and Billy Clanton, and Tom and Frank McLaury, and the opposing town Marshal Virgil Earp and his brothers Assistant Town Marshal Morgan and temporary lawman Wyatt, aided by Doc Holliday designated as a temporary marshal by Virgil. Twenty four seconds and 30 shots later, Billy Clanton, Tom and Frank McLaury were mortally wounded.

The Arizona Cardinals saw their season come to an end with a 27-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the wild card round of the NFL playoffs. Jess and Seth look at the playoff disaster and what went wrong, not only in that game, but also in the final few games. Then, they look back at the season and reflect on how it was. Would it have been better to have missed the playoffs than make it and not perform well at all?
Then, the hosts give end of season awards -- MVPs, surprises and disappointments.
The next show will get into offseason issues for the Cardinals.

Tombstone got its start in 1877 when Ed Schieffelin found one of the richest silver strikes in U.S. history in the hills above the San Pedro River. His discovery set in motion the history of a town that is seared in the memory of a nation and the world a true representative of the "American West". By 1879 settlement began, and by 1881 the population of the town reached 6000 people. While many rugged individuals inhabited the town's center, respectability and civilization began to occur on the edges of town. Church services were held in any vacant room or closed bar and the need for a decent church building was quite evident! In 1879, Rev. John Baptist Salpointe, Vicar Apostolic of Arizona, sent Father Antonio Jouvencaeu to Tombstone to ascertain the need for a church in the busy mining camp. Led by Nellie Cashman "Angel of the Camp", the citizens of Tombstone raised money to build a one and one-half story adobe building that housed a rectory on the top floor and a church on the bottom floor. This church-rectory was dedicated as Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church on January 1, 1881, becoming the first church building of any denomination in Tombstone.
In 1882, a second wooden Catholic Church building was constructed. This allowed the 1881 building to be used solely as a rectory. Again, Nellie Cashman spearheaded the construction efforts, raising money and borrowing a team of horses and a wagon to haul wood from the Chiricahua Mountains, 50 miles away. This church building served the Tombstone Community until 1947 when it was moved to its present location. A new 1947 church building was constructed at the corner of N. Sixth and Safford Streets under the guidance of Pastor, Father Thomas Doyle. Later, the property north of the church that included two 1880's entwining rose trees was donated to and became part of the Sacred Heart Church Complex.
