The "new" Old Style Saloon #10, located at 657 Main Street, is not the actual location of Wild Bill Hickok's shooting, but rather, was created in 1938.

 

The first story of the building was constructed in 1880 by Ben Baer and Max Fishel where Baer operated a liquor store and Fishel ran a stationery store. However, in 1909, Sol Levinson moved his jewelry store in the building and added a second story and new front to the building the next year. Later the building housed a shoe and clothing store, until it was recreated as the Old Style Saloon #10 in 1938. In keeping with a frontier theme, the building was remodeled at that time and since then has changed very little.

 

Here, you will not only find a real saloon, restaurant, and gambling den, but also a "saloon museum" where historical and mining camp artifacts, spanning over 100 years, are exhibited along the walls. One display shows what is allegedly the original "death chair" where Hickok was shot, but according to our sources, it is actually one that is similar. The saloon also features a Bill Hickok, Jack McCall and the other players recreating the shooting every day at 3:00 p.m. Children are welcome in the saloon up into 8:30 p.m. when the saloon welcomes adults only.
