Narrator: Hays

Helen Duett Ellison Hunt was a true cowgirl fit to serve as Arizona’s first First Lady. George W. P. Hunt courted “Duett” for thirteen years before he gave her an ultimatum: he would be in Holbrook on February 24, 1904, and as his bride she ought to be there too. Helen died of appendicitis on April 18, 1931, and Governor Hunt found this beautiful site appropriate for his beloved. He died three years later and is buried with Helen, her sister Lena, and her parents in Hunt’s Tomb.
