Just 20 miles to the north of Minneola, travelers will find the historic Boot Hill made famous by the television show “Gunsmoke.” The Boot Hill and Front Street replicas draw visitors into the history of Dodge City, which was the largest cattle market in the world for 10 years and for 15 years was thought to be the wildest town on the American frontier, according to the historical marker located just west of Dodge City on US 50. After a day of visiting the museum on Front Street, take time to eat and checkout the remainder of Boot Hill before checking out the Santa Fe Depot and the Repertory Theater.
