White Hills 57 Years Later

September 3, 2013

Wyatt Earp gambled here in the teens. This photo dates from about 1900. Fast forward to 1957 it looked like this:

This is from True West magazine. And here is Dan The Man Harshberger and myself standing in the doorway of one of the above remaining buildings.

This was at a Sunday picnic the Harshberger family would put on. Dan's father Nelson would drive us kids (Dan had a sister, Charlene and she would usually take a friend, I think on this trip it was Rachel B.) and I was Dan's friend. Still am.
