This chapter explains how Dick Dana and Octavia Dockery profited from their notoriety. They not only opened their estate and home to tourists, they went on tour performing as the “Wild Man” and “Goat Woman” of Goat Castle. Those assisting the pair printed flyers inviting people to help the “old folks” restore Glenwood. And to come see the famous goats.
