    Description

    "The Butterfield Stage Line" Poster Original Art (1980). Bob Bates' famous original painting of a stagecoach ride, created for the 1980 park entrance poster series. The Ghost Town "Butterfield Stage Line" was started in 1949 by Bill Higdon with two horses and a covered wagon, and over the years it grew to include its own Depot, four stagecoaches, and a covered wagon. Today, they have forty horses, two burros, and six working stagecoaches. In fact, this is one of the only known working stagecoach lines to still exist on the planet! In the 1950s, as many as 70,000 passengers a month rode the stagecoach, and many were actually "held up"! The poster art for this attraction is painted on board measuring a whopping 30" x 24". Minor handling and edge wear; Very Good condition.
