Big Nose Kate’s Saloon

Mary Katherine Horony Cummings (November 7, 1850 – November 2, 1940), known as Big Nose Kate, was the long-time companion/common law wife of fabled gunfighter Doc Holliday.

Big Nose Kate’s Saloon started out life in 1881 as the Grand Hotel. The hotel burned down in the early 1900’s and when rebuilt, was renamed Big Nose Kate’s in her honor. On October 25, 1881, the night before the Gunfight at the OK Corral, the Clantons and McLaurys were guests in the hotel.
