Doc Holliday CollectionGlenwood Springs, CO

In partnership with the Glenwood Historical Society, Bullock’s donated space to honor the late Doc Holliday, who died right here in our downtown location in November, 1887 from advanced tuberculosis at the age of 36. (Although the Hotel Glenwood—his lodgings at that time—burned down in 1945, the spirit of Doc is said to remain here. That’s validated by several visitors and three psychic mediums.)

The original, charred beam of the Hotel Glenwood is still visible at the Doc Holliday Collection inside our store, a satellite museum of the Historical Society. This assemblage of memorabilia and artifacts, including what may have been Doc’s derringera sidearm gifted to him by his paramour Bignose Kateare all on display for visitors seven days a week in the summer, for a nominal $5 entry fee. Kids 12 and under are admitted free.

Interesting Facts

Glenwood Springs has a remarkable history as a resort town, with the compelling pull of its therapeutic hot springs drawing people here for centuries: First, the nomadic Native Americans, and later, the aristocracy of the Victorian age, President Theodore Roosevelt and Titanic survivor the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown. But perhaps most intriguing of all is the one-time resident who is buried here: John “Doc” Holliday, the card-playing dentist and gunfighter who made history at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, and elsewhere in the West—including Texas, Kansas and New Mexico.
