Harry Tyler’s Gun on Display

After the closure of Citizens Bank in Deep River, many community members were concerned about the future of Harry Tyler’s Winchester Rifle. This rifle was used in the infamous Deep River bank robbery of 1899. Harry Tyler used it to defend the bank, killing the man only known as XYZ.

The DRHS is excited to announce the 122-year-old firearm has been donated to the Society and will be on permanent display at the Stone House. A huge thank you to Mark Lowrey who created a beautiful new locked gun case for this legendary Deep River artifact.
