Two Guns

The ruins of an old Route 66 roadside attraction at Two Guns, established by Harry E. "Indian" Miller.  Due to a couple of re-routings of Route 66, the zoo was moved to its present location by Phillip E Hesch, who took over the property.  The zoo was closed by 1950, but later reopened; Two Guns fell into a state of decline during the '70s--finally closing up in 1995.  The property is for sale. ___________________________

Not much is left of the building--one room and the remaining rock walls.  "Indian" Miller exhibited a variety of animals indigenous to Arizona, including snakes, gila monsters and mountain lions.  

 
Walking down the stairs, one finds the old cages the animals were kept in.  The cages face the ege of Canyon Diablo.  
  

 

More cages--vacant for many years

Old ruins of the Cundiff Store and living quarters built circa the 1920's across the canyon from the Mountain Lion zoo--part of the Two Guns property that had been leased and operated as a highway stop along Route 66 during the first half of the 20th Century.
