Famous Gunfight At The OK Corral
OK Corral After 1882 Fire
Did you know...
The famous OK Corral Gunfight
didnít even take place in a corral?
The actual Gunfight Location, was in a vacant lot near the corner of fourth and Fremont Street, behind the OK Corral, officially known as lot #2 in Block 17.
This is a photo of the way the site looks today.
Originally, there was no wall and the buildings were only about 15 feet apart, it was more like an alley way between these two buildings.
This is the site where the Earps and Doc Holliday murdered Billy Clanton and Tom and Frank McLaury on October 26, 1881.
John Henry "Doc" Holliday lived on the second floor of this building with his live in girlfriend known as Big Nose Kate (aka: Kate Elder, born Mary Katharine Harony)
On the first floor was Camillus Flyís Photographic Studio where many old studio shots were taken, including the only known photo of Ike Clanton.
