January 13, 1929 Wyatt Earp Died In Los Angeles, California!

While few people realize it, Wyatt Earp from his teenage years when he drove a stage for Phineas Banning until his death many decades later, spent more time in Los Angeles - and Southern California - than any other part of the country.

Much of that time was spend around Downtown Los Angeles where he once ran a faro game (directly across the street from where I am typing this)in the Alexandria Hotel. And the reason why he spent so much time at the Alexandria Hotel was... well... you'll just have to wait for the debut of the beta version of the Los Angeles Museum in March....
