The Kersey Valley outdoors attraction facility in Archdale got its start on a childhood dare.

In 1985, owner Tony Wohlgemuth, then 15, and some friends were camping in the barn on the 65-acre farm on Kersey Valley Road. The six boys created a light source by attaching an old chandelier with iron spikes to a drop cord, hanging it above them, then running the cord through the window of the nearby old farm house for power. But the cord came loose and the chandelier almost hit the boys.
