Site where Englishman John Henry Tunstall was murdered on 18 February 1878. Tunstall is remembered today only because one of his employees at the time of his murder was William H. Bonney aka Billy the Kid. The spot where Tunstall fell mortally wounded from his horse is marked with a lump of cement holding in place a vertical metal shaft. When I visited in August 2003 the shaft was bare. It now holds a US Forest Service sign identifying the site.
