Doc Holliday Collection

Glenwood Springs, CO

Explore the Doc Holliday Collection located downstairs in the Bullock’s Clothing Store. This site is where the original Hotel Glenwood stood and is where Doc Holliday passed away November 8, 1887. He suffered from advanced tuberculosis and came to Glenwood hoping the vapor caves would help his prognosis. He passed away at the age of 36 on the third floor of the Hotel. The historic building burned to the ground in 1945. Soon after the fire, the Bullock family purchased the land and built a new structure in 1949 on the original foundation. In partnership with the Glenwood Historical Society, Bullock’s donated space to display many pictures, personal items and reading material pertaining to Doc.  

The original charred beam of the Hotel Glenwood is part of the Doc Holliday Collection. Memorabilia on display include the engraved derringer – a sidearm gifted to Doc by his partner Big Nose Kate, other antique guns, a saddle from the time period, and Doc’s dentist chair. It is definitely an experience to include while visiting Glenwood Springs.

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.
