Doc Holliday's gravesite
The trail head to Doc's gravesite can be found at the corner of 12th St. and Bennett Ave. It's a half mile uphill climb on an unkept trail. Once you reach the cemetery there are plenty of signs directing you to Doc's grave.[Joe Boulter, 10/28/2006]
Doc's current tombstone was erected in 2004. It's his third -- and the first one wasn't put in place until the late 1950s. Both #1 and #2 only lasted about 25 years apiece before they had to be replaced, reportedly because they were shot up by morons.
While there is a large headstone for Doc Holliday, it doesn't actually mark his grave because, according to the signs in front of the graveyard, no one knows exactly where he's buried. He is buried somewhere within the graveyard but apparently, only one person in town knows where ... and that person is supposedly awaiting the outcome of a "wager" which will ultimately help him decide whether or not to divulge the Doc's true resting place.[Cal Bray, 05/29/2001]
Doc Holliday's grave
The town at the junction of US 70 and CO 82, holds the grave of one of America's celebrated gunslingers, Doc Holliday. Off the main road, take 9th street to the end (about 2 blocks) and look for a sign declaring the way to Doc's Grave. After a short hike (1/2 mile, max) you will arrive at a small, very old cemetery surrounded by a fence (to prevent motorbikes from destroying the place I imagine, because it's got one of those right-angle entrances you find at high school baseball fields). Anyway, a quick look around this hilly cemetery will find you a simple gravestone surrounded by a 2 foot high fence. The gravestone has his name, dates, and reads "He died in bed."[Matty Anderson, 08/20/1998]
