Pat Garrett's Badge and Other Wonders

Cool, eclectic shop. Take your time, as there is a lot to see. It's overwhelming at first, but so worth it. The owner has great stories about the historic items.

This is Arnold Duke's collection that used to be on display at Fox Cave, before it was turned into a marijuana dispensary.
