About this event

The story of noted western figure John Henry “Doc” Holliday finds its beginning in Griffin, Georgia. Considered by some as just another gambler and gunslinger, his life was, to put it simply, complicated. The Hollidays lived in Griffin the first 13 years of Doc’s life. They headed to Valdosta in 1864 in efforts to escape Sherman’s March to the Sea. Following his graduation from Dental School, Doc returned to Griffin and established a dental practice downtown. However, his return did not last long as he soon headed west to Texas. While fact and fiction have blurred with time, we proudly recognize Griffin’s noble, native son. We invite you to celebrate John Henry “Doc” Holliday with us this September!
