In 1872, George Hoover set up the first business in what was to become Dodge City. Setting up a tent shop to sell whiskey, Hoover’s Bar was created five miles away from Fort Dodge in Kansas in hopes of getting business from the fort’s soldiers. This 1872 silver three cent coin recalls a tent shop that would help create Dodge City.
