Owner and proprietor of Higginbotham’s Boarding House. This is an extremely large four-story house with 18 rooms (six on each of the 6upper 3 floors) for rent ($1/day, $6/week, $20/month, meals included). It is run by Tallulah Higginbotham, a former socialite from New York who traveled west with her husband, Royal Higginbotham, with dreams of gold and silver. They found silver—but Royal also found a bullet at the hands of an unscrupulous partner who tried to take it all. The partner, Franklin Trotter, was found by the Pinkertons and brought to justice. Tallulah took her fortune and settled in Paiute Springs, not wanting to face her New York friends with the tragedy she found in the West.
