Inscription. The Can Can Restaurant was established in 1879 by Quong Kee. It was one of Tombstone's best known restaurants. In 1886 it was purchased by John Henninger who turned it into a first class eating establishment. It had a number of proprietors until 1921. In 1928, it became the Piggly Wiggly Market. In 1945 a Dr. Paul Zin and Father Aull opened the Tombstone Medical Center in this building. It was a facility for the treatment of asthma and other respiratory ailments. It was very successful and operated until the death of Father Aull in 1948. In the 1970's it was a coin shop. It has had several tenants over the years, but is the original historic building.
