Dalton Gang Hideout Added To National Register of Historic Places.

KSCB News - January 26, 2015 8:03 am

A southwest Kansas roadside museum about a gang of bank and train robbers is among the newest properties added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Kansas Historical Society said in a news release that the Dalton Gang Hideout & Museum in Meade County is one of six new Kansas listings. The attraction was built around the former residence of a sister of the outlaw Dalton brothers. The gang was practically wiped out in 1892 while attempt to rob a pair of banks in Coffeyville.

The Meade Chamber of Commerce got help from the Work Projects Administration, or WPA, and the National Youth Administration in developing the site in 1940. The attraction is considered a product of the auto-tourism era of the early and mid-20th century.
