Pave Paradise And Put Up A Doc Parking Lot PLaque

 Cinco de Mayo, 2024

   Love this Mexican holiday even though my Sonoran friends tell me it's more of a Yankee Concoction to sell chimichangas, which were also created in the U.S. according to those same Sonorans.

   Meanwhile, to wrap up our new scholarship on The Deadly Dentist Doc Holliday, there will be a dedication and historical plaque put up on the spot of the boarding house where Doc roomed with the acting governor of Arizona in 1880.

Doc In Prescott, Arizona Territory

1879 or 1880

   Thanks to Brad Courtney and D. Sue Kissel for locating the boarding house in Prescott where Holliday was rooming, when he had the above photo taken. And thanks to this discovery a historical marker will be placed on the exact spot in a couple months.  

   And, so, where is this location today?

The Doc Parking Lot

(A plaque will be dedicated on August 14, 2024)

      I will see you there.
