    I wish Wes Anderson would make a movie about Allen English! What a character! Please read the articles in the “Links” section, “The Spell of the West” has a bit more about him.

    This unique home does seem to capture the Old West feel of early Tombstone, Arizona. Everything appears to be as claimed although I cannot verify if the colored paned windows are French or not. Fine millwork was scare in early desert communities like Tombstone so the rather plain interior and exterior reflect that. The Territorial capital of Prescott, AZ did have some fine Victorian era homes and some amazing feats of bringing the trappings of Victorian culture to the desert mining region occurred but this house is more typical of the period and follows Spanish Colonial adobe antecedents. Without the installed back bar of the Oriental saloon, and what appears to be a c. 1900 plain Oak mirrored mantel, (the tiles in front of the hearth are of more recent vintage) the original utilitarian nature of the house is evident. The lack of opulence here in no way diminishes its historical associations or value.

    Iknow this backbar well– I used to work in the t-shirt shop that was in the old Oriental Saloon for a few years. It looks wonderful in this lovely old house.

    Neat, Susan! Cool history to this house. The chandeliers are a surprise, from the description I gather not original but they do illustrate the eclectic way things happened in mining towns. Fun listing, Kelly!

    Somebody pinch me! Am I dreaming here or what?? I don’t know if I could
    handle the heat in that part of the country or not, BUT….I could live
    in this house. I wouldn’t change a thing!

    I actually like this cute little house but I could not live in town like that or desert. “Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above. Don’t fence me in.” 🙂 I would like to know where the General Store, Saloon, and horses tied up to the post are? Just ignore me. I am goofy today. Thanks for showing us this one, Kelly. I love the history with this area and would love to visit sometime.
