Doc Holliday Preview - The White Elephant Saloon & Jim McIntire

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Local historian Jim Mathis will tell about the White Elephant Saloon and Jim McIntire, a member of the Deadly Dozen Forgotten Gunfighters of the Old West. McIntire “hid out” for several months in early 1885 at the White Elephant Saloon at 301 W Main St. while being hunted for murder by New Mexico law officers. McIntire had friends in Denison and was acquainted with Pat Garrett, “Billy the Kid”, Wyatt Earp, and Doc Holliday- among many others. He also was a cowboy-gunfighter employed by the Loving Ranch of the Goodnight-Loving Cattle Trail fame (think Lonesome Dove).
