Dodge City Docket To Be On Display

KSCB News - November 13, 2009 12:00 am

Visitors to the Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City will be able to see a piece of history on Dec. 7.

The museum will hold a public viewing of the police docket book

from the late 1870s, which includes notes and signatures of lawmen

Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. It also contains details of court

cases in Dodge City from 1878 to 1882.

The docket was recovered earlier this year after a yearlong

investigation by the FBI, the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Ford

County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials found the book after someone tried to sell it on the

Internet. It has an estimated value of $100,000.

The Boot Hill Museum will hold a public viewing of the book from

3 to 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7 in the museum’s Old House Saloon.
