THE BLACK MORIAH

From 1881 to 1917, The Black Moriah carried all but six of the Tombstone AZ residents to Boothill Graveyard. The hearse is trimmed in 24k gold and Sterling Silver and was the first vehicle with curved glass. This is only one of the eight made and
can be seen on display in The Bird Cage Theater.
It was said that the Black Moriah, had
"A Cowboy For Breakfast Everyday."
The Black Moriah is Valued by The Ford Museum at over Two Million Dollars,
The Nightly Ghost Tours are based in this area of The Bird Cage Theater, due to the High amount of Paranormal Activity that may be connected to "The Black Moriah".

DOC HOLLIDAY CUP
In a interview with Val Kilmer about the movie "Tombstone," He noted that the Doc Holliday Prop Cup was just a little to lightweight to do the flipping scene effectively, so they added some unseen putty to the inside for extra weight. It let him get some extra inertia so he could practice and perform
the scene. The Bird Cage Gift Shop is Proud to Sell The Best Quality "Doc Holliday Cup" Available. If you want to Practice Cup Flipping, This is the Perfect Weight, and the only cup that is a Replica of the Original, owned by Doc Holliday.
