category : Tours
Downtown Historical Walking Tour The famous and infamous walked the streets of Old Hays City during the 1860's to 1880's including Wild Bill Hickok, Buffalo Bill Cody and General George Armstrong Custer. Twenty five bronze plaques mark the route and explain the historical significance of each site. Begin the tour near 13th and Fort and learn about the area that was once known as Gospel Hill. See the location of The Perry House, where Hickok reportedly lived in this two story hotel while in Hays from 1867 to 1869. This area on West 10th Street was also where Cy Goddard Dance Hall was located. This place later became famous for the photo that was taken outside the dance hall in 1873 showing the after math of a gunfight and the murder scene of three privates from Fort Hays. A brochure and map of this self guided walking tour is available at the Hays Welcome Center. We encourage you to walk and learn about the history of Hays.
