This house stands on the corner of Pearlotte and Green St. in Meade, KS, is known as the Dalton Museum and is the center of the annual Dalton Days festivities. When the Gang visited their sister they allegedly used the escape tunnel that was dug from the house to the barn. This small museum was visited by a record attendance of 28,000 in the year 2000 and folks came from 23 nations.
