Wyatt Earp, best known for his stand against the Outlaw faction in Tombstone, his vendetta ride and his time as a Lawman in general, was an accomplished gambler and saloon owner.
As part owner in the Oriental Saloon, Tombstone, A.T. he had Bat Masterson, Doc Holliday and Luke Short working for him. In 1884, Earp and his brothers Warren and James bought a circus tent in which they opened a saloon called The White Elephant. An advertisement in a local newspaper suggested "gentlemen, come and see the elephant".
In 1899, Earp and C.E. Hoxsie built the Dexter Saloon in Nome, Alaska.
Earp opened the Northern Saloon in Tonopah, Nevada, circa 1902.
