James H. "Dog" Kelley, who ran a saloon and gambling hall on this site, was involved in the assault upon Sheriff Peter Lanahan on July 16, 1871, at Henry "Lon" Kelly's Saloon west of here. When Lanahan's bullets nearly hit him, "Dog" was so enraged that he ran back here, fetched his rifle, and went to Emma Bowen's to shoot the dying Lanahan, firing through a closed door, he missed Lanahan but wounded a man named May. Kelley moved his building to Dodge City in early summer of 1872 and became a founder and third mayor of Dodge. The site was then occupied by the home of Sheriff Alexander Ramsey, who was killed by a horse thief on June 7, 1875. Ramsey's grief-stricken wife, Mary died a few weeks later, and both are buried in Mt. Allen Cemetery near Vine Street.
