Official State Historian Marshall Trimble

In its heyday, Tombstone, Arizona was a busy metropolis that boasted hotels, gambling and dance halls, brothels and more than 100 saloons. The Bird Cage Theatre, which still stands today, was billed as the “wildest, wickedest night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast.” Hear from consummate storyteller and Arizona’s Official State Historian Marshall Trimble as he brings perspective to the social customs, cultural advancement and pastimes of the raucous and rowdy residents of the Town Too Tough to Die.
