Dalton Gang Hideout, Meade

(40+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Meade's major tourist attraction, the Dalton Gang Hideout, was formerly the home of Eva Dalton Whipple, sister to the infamous Dalton Gang.

Eva Dalton came to Meade in the mid 1880's, and was married to J.N. Whipple, a Meade merchant, in 1887. Whipple built the house which still stands at the corner of Pearlette and Green Streets in Meade for his bride.

Years after the couple left Meade a deep rain wash covered with timbers and earth was discovered; a tunnel from the house to the barn built into the hillside below. Legend has it the tunnel was used by the gang to come and go undetected by the law.
