The Crystal Palace Saloon



"Originally known as the Golden Eagle Brewing Company, this establishment was one of early Tombstone's first saloons. It occupied just a small lot of about 50 by 30 feet while the brewery was in another structure to the rear. Named after its builder, Benjamin Wehrfritz, the Wehrfritz Building was expanded by adding a second story to house the offices for such notables as U.S. Deputy Marshal Virgil Earp, attorney George W. Berry, and Dr. George E. Goodfellow. It is even known that "Buckskin" Frank Leslie was a night watchman here for a short time!"
