Abstract:
Lockhart Gaddy's wild geese refuge started accidentally in 1934, when migrating Canadian geese began settling on his farm pond in Anson County. This year he expects to have over 7,000 wintering there. Because he was feeding them up to twenty-five bushels of corn a day, Gaddy began charging a small fee admission to defray the cost of the feed. This attracted the tax collector who said the fee was subject to the government�s amusement tax.

Abstract:
Mrs. Hazel Ross Gaddy is seventy-three years old, and for almost half of her life, she has been looking after geese and ducks on her Ansonville farm. The farm is better known as Lockhart Gaddy's Wild Goose Refuge, which started in 1934. The refuge is small, being only 300 acres of farmland with a ten-acre pond. Each year some 12,000 to 15,000 Canada geese and wild ducks winter here. It is probably the only place in the country where visitors can observe Canada geese at really close range. The Anson County goose refuge rates a spot on each year's state highway map.
