      Once the home of Eva Dalton Whipple, sister to the outlaw Dalton Gang, this two-room house was built in 1887. Members of the gang are said to have ridden up to the nearby barn then made their way up to the house via a secret tunnel. The site has been a tourist attraction since as long ago as the 1940s. Visit the hideout today and, after looking around the excellent museum in the barn (with obligatory two-headed calf), you can follow in the Dalton Gang's footsteps via a reconstruction of that 95 feet-long secret tunnel.

      If you go:
      The site also features the Old Town, a wild west town facade with stores, livery stables, an undertaker's business (complete with casket) and a jailhouse - all great for photos. Opening hours are 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday; 1pm-5pm Sunday.
