Dating back to the 1800’s and known as one of the deadliest gunmen in the West, the infamous Billy the Kid became famous for being the only man ever to break into a jail. Legend says jail guards found themselves face to face with Billy’s 44 revolver just before he quickly retrieved the guard’s guns, helped his friend break out, put the guards in the jail and threw away the key. This place will certainly have you saying ͞hold on let me Instagram this.”
