When the Ford County commission returned control of reopening operations back to business owners, businesses began implementing reopening schedules.


On Monday, June 1, Boot Hill Museum will open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 to 6 p.m. on Sunday.


Modified performances of The Long Branch Variety Show and World-Famous Boot Hill Gunfighters will be held at 6 p.m. each day starting June 15 with the shows complementary with a museum admission ticket. All dates and times are subject to change.


According to the museum, the return of the Marshal Pass, which includes museum admission, the Long Branch Variety Show, the gunfight and country-style dinner, is still pending.


"The staff is doing all we can to offer a quality experience with safety in mind," said museum director Lara Brehm.


Some changes will be made during the summer season, such as signage around the museum complex with safety recommendations; masks available for visitors; hand sanitizing stations throughout the museum; and photo opportunities that follow safe physical distancing.
