Things to do while in Garden County.
Visit the historic Opera House/Silver Hills Theater Museum and view the Miles Maryott Bird Collection on display there.
Maryott, born in 1873, was an artist, an ornithologist, a taxidermist, a retired baseball player,
and a sharp-shooter. Commissioned by the US Government to document migrating birds, he had the distinction of being given permission by the US Government to shoot a Bald Eagle. Maryott spent the last years of his life in prison for the shooting of the local
