Big Nose Kate, whose real name was Mary Katherine Harmony, was a naughty, promiscuous woman who opened her saloon in the 1800s. The joint was a watering hole for big names such as Wyatt and Virgin Earp and Doc Holliday.
But some of the old-time guests never left. An old miner, called Swampy, allegedly hid silver somewhere in the building. His ghost still lingers at Big Nose Kate’s to protect his treasure.
Once a respectable, upscale opera house, Schieffelin Hall was left abandoned for half a century—that is, abandoned by the living.
Old performers, such as the Lady in Red, haunt the theater, dying to crawl their way back into the spotlight. The ghosts of basement suicide victims and mischievous poltergeists run amock and frighten anyone who enters Schieffelin Hall.
If you think you know the history of the O.K. Corral, think again. This livery and horse corral has seen many iconic faces out looking for trouble.
Sharp-shooters and gun-slingers have bloodied the name of the O.K. Corral. Even today, cowboys and villainous lawmen still haunt its dusty grounds, eager to kick up some mischief.
