Wyatt Earp's grave.

Wyatt Earp and Levi Strauss Tombs

As you enter into the cemetery please note, it is closed on Saturdays, but you can park and cross over the fence and walk through the cemetery without any problems. Walk up the hill several sections and locate row D1 and turn right, walking over to section D2, and the gravestone is about 2/3 of the way down.
