Tombstone prospered from about 1877-1890 through the mining of silver bullion. It is also rumored that Doc Holliday spent some time in Prescott just before heading to Tombstone. Teddy Roosevelt conscripted the original Roughriders from Prescott!

Downtown Prescott is a rich in historic heritage. Whiskey Row, dates back to 1864 and was visited by many well-known figures of that time, including Doc Holliday and the Earp brothers.  Destroyed in the fire, but restored, today Whiskey Row stands as a monument to the past.
