Hays City, KansasMore than a dozen brothels lined this and Fort Streets during Hays City's untamed years, 1867-1874. On this site stood a house owned at various times by the notorious Jim Curry, by his girl friend, Miss Ida May, and A.J. Peacock, who later fought Bat Masterson at Dodge City and by Miss Emma Bowen. In 1871, when Sheriff Peter Lanahan was shot by Bill Harris in a saloon brawl, Emma Bowen tossed him a gun with which he killed his assailant. The dying Lanahan was carried into Emma's house. Later Nettie Baldwin, Bill McClellan's girl, resided at this site.
