The Old West comes to the Daniel Lady Farm when Old West Cowboys, Marshalls and Gold miners present an extensive program including discovering and panning for gold, the robbery of a gold shipment, claim jumping and even a drunken brawl or two! Also learn about women’s contributions including Laundress and Telegraph Operators. There is even a Saloon hosted by the famous Dr. Tobias serving his wonderful elixirs!Children are encouraged to hunt for “gold” nuggets around the lost mine area and turn them into the Assay Office for “money” they can use at the Saloon.
Included in the ticket price are tours of the House and the Barn which became field hospitals for enlisted and officers. The farm was the site of artillery placements and infantry preparations for the Confederate attack on Culp’s Hill. Shell fragments and soldier’s carved initials are preserved in the barn and blood stained floors in the house.
