American Factoids:

 

The first western saloons really didn’t fit our classic idea of what a saloon looks like, but rather, were hastily thrown together tents or lean-to's where a lonesome traveler might strike up a conversation, where a cowman might make a deal, or a miner or a soldier might while away their off hours. However, as the settlement became more populated, the saloon would inevitably prosper, taking on the traditional trimmings of the Old West.

 

Keystone Hall, Laramie, Wyoming, 1868.

 

 

By 1884 the great era of the buffalo ended and nothing remained of the massive buffalo herds but piles of bones. At that time there were only some 1,200-2,000 surviving buffalo left in the United States.

 

Rainfall in Death Valley averages less than 2 inches a year. There have been some years of no recorded rainfall at all!

Pueblo Hotel Vintage Sign, by Jeroen and Maggie Boersma


Built as the Willard Hotel, in Tucson, Arizona in the early 1900's, in 1948 the property was renamed the Pueblo Hotel and Apartments. The sign went through various stages, with the swimming pool text and diver added in the 1950's. This vintage icon of a sign in Tucson was restored in 2012. Photo by Jeroen and Maggie Boersma and featured in our new Boersma Collection.

 

Did You Know?

Spanish Missions were not churches. They were Indian towns, with the church as the focus, where, in the 1700s, the native people were learning to become Spanish citizens. In order to become a citizen, they had to be Catholic; that is why the King of Spain sent missionaries to acculturate them.

Dave and Kathy at Big Nose Kate's Saloon in Tombstone, Arizona

Lots of folks think Legends of America is a big corporation with dozens of employees -- because we've been around so long & provide thousands of web pages -- Nope, we're not.

 

Legends is actually comprised of just two of us -- Dave & Kathy, who have a love of history, travel, and a desire to share it with the world!

 

Though we are a small Mom & Pop "shop", we have decades of customer service & business experience between the two us -- in both large and small organizations. With an entrepreneurial dream, we launched Legends of America in 2003

 

We are Midwest born and bred with great values. You'll find, with just an email, phone call, or order, that our customer service is Over the Top!!

 

The Legends General Store and our Photo Shop are the means for providing the volumes of information to our readers at no cost.
