Prescott’s Original Whiskey Row

Some of the oldest, most notorious saloons in the American West lined the streets of Prescott's Whiskey Row. Dating back to 1864, the remote mountain town thrived on its mining and cattle industries during the day and raised hell at night when dusty outlaws and pioneers like Virgil Earp and Doc Holliday crowded Row saloons to quench their thirsts. Whiskey Row bore witness to legendary gunfights, murders and other curious tales, like that of Baby Bell, aka Chance Cobweb Hall, known today as Arizona's most famous saloon story. From crooked gambling operations and barroom brawls to the devastating fire of 1900, author and historian Bradley G. Courtney explores the colorful stories of Whiskey Row.
