Boot Hill Dodge City Kansas 1963

Many Western cities and towns have Boot Hill's. Dodge City in Kansas has a whole street and several museums in one area. This was a major tourist attraction at the time. First view is of Front street with a typical commercial block from the old west.

The next two images show close up photographs of the street and the commercial buildings.

Of course there is a cemetery at Boot Hill and a hanging tree. Too bad the tombstones are a little blurry.

Final image is a view of the museum and old Fort Dodge.

Just a note that like this ghost town, the blog may seem a bit empty. I am heading to California for a visit to the San Diego Comic Con and also Disneyland. If possible, I will post some trip reports.
