Meade's major tourist attraction, the Dalton Gang Hideout, was formerly the home of Eva Dalton Whipple, sister to the infamous Dalton Gang.Plan a Meade trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
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.

This place is awesome. I forgot the name of the curator but he's an ol Navy vet I had a great time chatting with. This place charges $5 which I would have gladly paid had the curator not given me free entry due to my short recon through Afghanistan. Worth more than that just to see it.

Traveled thru.. No need to stop. Not logical.. Especially considering the events in question happened while the brothers were LAW ABIDING US MARSHALS... Would have been better if it wasnt a play on my intelligence and was documented as simply being their sister home
