America's "Little Sure Shot"

Annie Oakley America's "Little Sure Shot" was born in northeastern Darke County, Ohio, and spent her childhood days in the house on this site. At that time the dense virgin forest surrounded her home and Annie shot and trapped wild game to help pay the debt on the property. By persistent priactice she became an expert shot and spent several years with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show travelling extensively in America and Europe in whcih latter country she exhibited before crowned heads and she received a very enthusiastic reception. Eventually she became recognized as the champion lady rifle shot of the world and set a record for fancy and rapid shooting that may never be excelled by any woman. This tablete is placed by admiring friends. A.D. 1936
