John Horton Slaughter and his beloved wife and partner, Cora Viola Howell Slaughter shaped southeastern Arizona in the aftermath of the OK Corral shootout. As sheriff, John brought peace to a fledgling Cochise County, making it safe for his cattle and his extended ranch family to thrive in the lush, well-watered grasslands. This exhibit explores one couple and their border ranch, as their world changed dramatically and an era of large range cattle ranching, as we know it, came to an end.
