The Outlaw Stop In Baggs
The Outlaw Stop, located in the center of Baggs, has two buildings: The Mathews/Gaddis house which was lived in by Pearl Mathews Gaddis for over 70 years and the Baggs Town Hall, fire station and jail; all in one small building.
In the early days the Mathews/Gaddis cabin was a road-house and a Saturday night dance-hall frequented by Butch Cassidy and his gang. They would stop by for a meal and entertainment, summoning the local fiddle player regardless of the time of night. Along with Butch on the harmonica, the two would play for the rest of the gang while everyone danced and partied till dawn.
Stop by and tour the buildings, see the photos of early Baggs, and hear stories on outlaws and early residents. While you are there, you can buy a book on the outlaws or local history and have a picnic in the shade.
