Historical Tidbit The Earp Cottages From the movie TOMBSTONE The cottages used by Virgil and Wyatt Earp (Sam Elliott & Kurt Russell) were modified and restored to an 1880s look for the film "Tombstone". Before "Tombstone", they were used in season three of the TV series "The Young Riders" (1992). Virgil's cottage was built as the bunkhouse for the Pony Express riders (including Josh Brolin & Stephen Baldwin), and Wyatt's cottage was created as a home for Miss Rachel. (Clare Wren).
