Additional Description: Description on Postcard:
Wyatt Earp's Home
Wyatt Earp lived in this house with his wife around the close of World War One. Wyatt worked at a mine in the Whipple Mountain District and hauled ore to the river boats in the wagon that stands alongside the old building. Wyatt spent more time as a miner than as a law man. He did well in Alaska and did some mining in Goldfield. He worked for Tex Rickard as a gambler and floor boss. This little town was called Drennan on the California side of the Colorado River. The name was changed to Earp after Wyatt's death. There is another Earp house in the nearby town of Vidal. There are a great number of camps along the river on both the Arizona and California side...MP
