"Gunsmoke" is one of the longest running television series. On TV for 20 seasons, the popular Western was a mainstay. Episodes still air today, keeping alive the fascination many have with the lure of the Old West. However, did you know that the Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City was an actual place?
While history can't pinpoint exactly when the saloon immortalized on the "Gunsmoke" series opened, it did reportedly burn down in 1885. The saloon poured customers milk, tea, lemonade, sarsaparilla and of course, beer and alcohol. Today, if you visit Dodge City, Kansas, you'll find a rebuilt Long Branch Saloon that serves as a major tourist attraction.
