Mathews/Gaddis House: A Roadhouse for Butch Cassidy and his Gang

The Mathews/Gaddis House served as both a home to Pearl Mathews Gaddis and a roadhouse that doubled as a Saturday night dance hall. Cassidy and his gang were frequent visitors to the house, where they enjoyed good food and entertainment. Tom Vernon, a local musician, would join Butch on the harmonica to act as a band for dances that lasted until dawn.
