Sublet Wyatt Earp's 1912 Craftsman in Hollywood Heights

New, 6 comments


While most people associate the legendary Wyatt Earp with Tombstone, AZ and its OK Corral, according to a 2000 feature in the LA Times, the frontiersman and his common-law wife, Sadie Marcus, "lived in at least nine Los Angeles rentals as early as 1885 and as late as 1929, mostly in the summer. The winters they spent mining in San Bernardino County, running off claim jumpers and filing more than 100 mining and mineral claims. For a change of pace, they took side trips to San Diego, where they owned three gambling dens in the thriving red-light district." Currently on Craigslist is a posting inviting all and sundry to "SUBLET WYATT EARP'S HOUSE." Per the ad, the house in question is a "Craftsman House built in 1912 on lush 1 acre grounds in historical Hollywood Heights. Peaceful, private gated property. Large 2 bedrooms, living room with fireplace, study, dining room, kitchen with washer and dryer, large porch and garden. Free Wifi, TV, utilities & amenities, and parking." Available from October through January, the furnished property can be yours for $2,800 a month.
