Inscription. Moses Waters (1841-1889) and Henry Murray opened a saloon on this site in 1869. In partnership with James Hanrahan, Waters operated a second saloon, the Occident, in Dodge City. Waters was post sutler at Fort Riley from 1875 to 1889. Jack Hill, one of Boot Hill’s earliest “residents", was killed while being returned to Hays City after stealing Moses Waters’ mule.
