1929: The First Helldorado
1929: The First Helldorado is the second publication from Don Taylor. "Helldorado" is Tombstone's longest running celebration weekend. This 40-page booklet tells the story of the first Helldorado Days celebration held October 24-27, 1929. William Kelly, the owner and editor of the Tombstone Epitaph newspaper was the catalyst for the festival. He conceived the idea on June 6, 1929, and the town pulled it off in just over four months. On its face, the event was designed to celebrate Tombstone's 50th Anniversary; however, the real intent was to keep the County Seat in the courthouse on Toughnut Street. The booklet details all of the steps leading up to, during, and after this wonderful part of Tombstone's history.
