    Map of Colton, California, Home of the Earp Family, circa 1880s. Measures 14" x 17" and displays the town of Colton with all the local streets and lot numbers for the court house. Very historical Wyatt Earp-related item. Morgan was buried just south of the town of Colton after he was killed in Tombstone.

    Colton was founded in 1875, incorporated in 1887, and laid-out when the Southern Pacific Railroad was constructed through the valley. Nicholas P. Earp owned the Gem saloon while he was the City Clerk for Colton. Wyatt Earp applied to City Hall to operate a gambling hall in Colton, but was turned down. The Earp family settled in Colton in 1877, and N. P. Earp was elected as recorder in 1887, the same year Virgil Earp was elected the first marshal of Colton. The town was named after Civil War General David Colton who was vice president of the Southern Pacific Railroad.

    Very good-fine, with some foxing and archival repairs on some small tears.
