Count my wife and I in as well, our values, mores
and even pace of life in conjunction w/progress has sickened me and would love to return to a simpler time when all was as it seems.

I love old ghost towns. The first ghost town I saw
was about fifty years ago in Washington State. It
long ago disappeared.We were exploring back roads.

. Going around a bend up in the Cascades, suddenly
in front of us was an entire unpopulated ghost to
wn. I have many books written about ghost towns.
When I visited Virginia City out of Reno;I return
ed home and checked out two stacks of books from
the Tacoma Library. They consisted of all the
recorded history of Nevada, Virginia City, and
Samuel Clements writings Something is wrong with
your email. What I am saying slides everywhere.

MY email is earthfeather99@yahoo.com
Please email me if you get this and if it makes sense.

Tracy,
We believe we could be an asset to your town for I and my husband have many skills we could share in a community that is willing to have us along with our 2 children.

I(Ann) have skills in quilt making, leather work, cabinet building, gardening and home canning.
I am also learnign about computer web page building and graphics.

My husband has been in outdoor construction for 9 years. He also has experience with horses and he is good with an axe.

We are learning about building a log cabin from scratch and it seems to be fun. He also has a great deal of patience in learning new things.

Our son who is 13 is ADHD, and we believe a simple but hard life of good old fashion living would help him to grow up and learn what it is to be a man with chilvary.

Our daughter is 11, going on 20 with all the things she is faced with in our community. She needs to know how it is to be young and not grow up so fast in a cruel world.

Please send us more information.

My husband and I have talked about doing the same thing for quite awhile now, but do not have the money, or the land to do it ourselves. I would be interested in more information about the possible location, and will answere any questions you have about us. Thank you, Twila

My name is Mark. I currently live in Jackson,Wy where my great, great grandfather homesteaded. I was born in the mountains of North Carolina. I have acquired the skills of building log homes from foundation up. i believe that we were meant to live life under the eye of God our father. I also believe that our youth have taken a turn for the worst. It is nearly impossible to find a place to live where you can trust your neighbors and have community friendship amongst all. I am 30 years old, love nature and believe that you can only fool with nature so long before she turns around to bite you back. I have worked in the environmental sector in California before I moved here. Although I believe that most I have worked with do not understand the word sustainable, meaning you can take a little, (only what you need), and not do damage to hte environment. I am a young christian. I love to be around good people. I also enjoy working with underpriviledeged children and inner city youth. I believe the youth are the foundation of our future. If you would, please send me more info. on your intentions.

You have peaked my interest with your offer. I would very much like to hear more of your 1800,s town and it's proposed location, hopefully very remote. I have always felt that I was born in the wrong century and envy the simpler life. This world we now live in is not my world, it is a cruel world without values and the most important of those being life!

I just saw your posting! I would love more information about the location and such. My sister and I have been thinking of moving away from home together (I am 20 and she is 17) and being roommates. My whole family is fascinated with history! My sister, Amy, and I, Sarah, would be wonderful at fitting in to "old-fashioned" ways. We've long since decided we were born in the wrong time period. Perhaps you could help us remedy that mistake? :) Please, PLEASE send me information at sara_withanh@yahoo.com.

I would love to get back to basics.Please let me know more. I'd love living like my ancestors did.Todays society is too dishonest and immoral for me. I always knew I was born a century or two to late.

Folks, if you want a taste of life in the late 1800's, go visit the Amish. We have gone to a few Amish homes here in N.E. OK who host dinners for groups of "outsiders", for a reasonable price. These people are really back to (never left) the basics. There are a couple of Amish supply catalogs out there full of necessities from the late 1800's. Just a thought.

: : Folks, if you want a taste of life in the late 1800's, go visit the Amish. We have gone to a few Amish homes here in N.E. OK who host dinners for groups of "outsiders", for a reasonable price. These people are really back to (never left) the basics. There are a couple of Amish supply catalogs out there full of necessities from the late 1800's. Just a thought.

: What is this site about? I was looking for the email address of a catalog I need to order supplies from. I'm Conservative Mennonite. When I listed the catalog, this site came up.

I really wonder how many people, given the opportunity actually would step back in time and live under the same conditions as those hearty souls who lived in the 1800s? Every time I visit a GT or an abandoned ranch house, I can't help but marvel at the sheer stamina and endurance those people must have possessed. Thank goodness for our predecessors who settled, mined and worked this wonderful land. I for one wouldn't have the leather-tough spirit to endure the hardships they faced on a daily basis. Our power went out for an hour last night during a storm, after 10 minutes, I was ready to hit the panic button.

I once had a long conversation with fellow old West buffs about the subject. I guess it dosen't make interesting cinema, so a lot of the hardships are glossed over in the movies, where so many of us get our information in the first place.

Obvious exceptions are Unforgiven and the mini series Deadwood.

But I digress. We spoke of warm beer, coffee with the grounds in it, and really fatty food. Lots of bacon and beans, but a lot of folks on the trail lived on flour and water, with a bit of jerky.

Hygeine was nearly unknown, and deodorant had not been invented yet. You wiped your hands on your clothes or wherever when you were done "with your business".

Doctors and dentists were a half-step above butchers, with the most common method of relief was removal.

I know you guys know a lot more about the subject than I do. What else can you come up with?

Little or no law in some areas,
Women being treated as one step above cattle - usually
Lack of adequate food prep, storage and safety knowledge, causing illness and death,
High child mortality rates
Often isolation for long periods of time
Not being able to run down to the supermarket if the shelves were empty
No air conditioning and little in the way of heat
And no gol dang Haagen Daas Cherry Vanilla ice cream!

.... and no Slurpies, no air conditioning, no inside plumbing, the flies, no air conditioning, being last in line for the traditional Saturday night bath and no air conditioning.
Seldom coffee (usually chickory or some other toasted weed)

This is an actual recipe from the book "Pioneer Women of Gila County, Arizona" volume two, compiled by The Daughters of the Gila County Pioneers.


Son-of-a-Gun Stew
(usually made when a beef was butchered)



Remove all the marrow from bones

Half the liver

Heart

Kidneys

Sweet Breads

Tongue

Brains

Onions

Beef Fat

Onions

Salt, Pepper and Sage
cut all meats into small chunks, brains should be fried and added last few hours. Add onions, seasonings and water in large kettle and cook slowly 5 or 6 hours.


I don't know about you all, but to me this sounds stomach churning, but I suppose back then you ate what was available or you'd go hungry.....


and no air conditioning!

I got this off the internet. If this is sweetbreads, I'd be a vegetarian!

"Dear Cecil:

We were all sitting around lunch the other day and the question of what sweetbreads are came up. I voted for the thymus gland, but I was tremendously outnumbered by votes for the pancreas. Other suggestions included the brain, salivary gland, and even some sort of reproductive organ. I won't comment on the mental status of the person giving the latter suggestion, but you may feel free to do so. --M.K., Baltimore

Dear M.:

Boy, nothing like a little light conversation to improve the digestion. As it happens, you and the pancreas bloc are both right. There are two kinds of sweetbreads: stomach sweetbreads (also known as heart or belly sweetbreads), which are an animal's pancreas, and neck (AKA throat or gullet) sweetbreads, an animal's thymus gland. (The animal in question can be a hog or calf or just about any other large mammal, I gather.) They're called sweetbreads for the obvious reason that if you called them thymus glands or whatever you couldn't give the **** things away. The art of euphemism goes back a long way.

Call me naive', but why didn't they just cut up the "good" parts?

And no air conditioning too!

Ice Cream is a luxury up at Cerro Gordo. It would melt before you got to town, driving up from the store in Lone Pine. Need to get an ice cream maker and make my own, I guess. I'd be more apt to do that than by a portable freezer for my forerunner.

I once had a friend that lived in a very rural community. He took a large cooler with him shopping once a week, and he was able to purchase dry ice at his grocery store, which he used to pack the frozen goods. Like me, he was an ice-cream-o-holic.

Hi , I am 48 with a severe hidden dissabillity . I was thinking yesterday if I could do anything I would love to live in a Western type town . Gunsmoke is my favorite show lol . I have a great imagination and business sense . I would love to build up a apothocary /Salloon . My dream is to be part of a therapuetic community and what could be more therapuetic than this theme . It would be hard ....coming up with land / with water . Dealing with sewage .....even eachother and the financial hardships . It would seem for it too work it would have to be tourist driven to bring in $$$ . I can help with ideas and you can see where I want to fit in . I would have to use colledge students for workers as I am relegated to sitting but it can be done . Getting a retired Doc would be a big plus . I am afraid a teacher would be not in the budjet if you really think this through . Unless someone wealthy sponsors them . Reality is harsh but what a coincidence this is my dream too . Being part of a town like this and building it into a perpetual trust . Having a set for theatre and the arts . Virginia City has done a wonderful job but this is a neat idea it could be done . I would love to have a wooden plank salloon and build it up . Figure it would take a decade min for it to even find shape . How could we get suitable land thats my question ? Corperate sponsorship ? Colledge sponsorship . Did anyone see the specials on discovery about colonial settlements and similar projects . They also did a wagon train ...Maybe this could evolve simularily . I doubt someone like me could be part of that but we all have dreams ....even the sick and dieing . This is a wonderful dream .

Hey Nick, there's nothing wrong with dreaming, although my dreams tend to run more toward places with indoor plumbing, electricity and air conditioning.
I saw a couple of the TV shows in that series you mentioned. The one "Texas Ranch House" stands out in my mind because of the harsh living conditions of trying to eke out an existence in "the good old days" amid the flies, heat, dirt and ornery ranch hands.
Keep the dream alive Nick, dreamland isn't a bad place to dwell when the real world gets too harsh. ;) :)

We never did hear back from tracy ...reality more than likely set in unless she was a multi millionaire and even then the task of town building has ruined many . It really is possible though to live in a 1800's town . There are historical parks with volunteer possibillities all over the world . It takes commitment and very likely one will have to have enough savings to cover the entire time and the 6 months after your volunteer position expires . Often you must reserve your spot a few years in advance and be flexible .

One really neat Ghost town in perfect shape I know of is Fayetteville Michigan . Sadly the park service has cut back on funding there . IT is one of the best perserved late 1800 ghost towns in existance in the United States . It was smelting operation in the Iron Ore industry that succumbed to financial pressures . It only stayed preserved as it was re-invented as a resort which failed in the depression . Due to its seclusion and Weather it withstood time until being taken over by the State . Anyone in the midwest should make the trip . Especially this time of year . Labor day weekend is the Mackinaw Island Bridge Walk . What a wonderful trip to do these two things at once . Camping in Northern Michigan this time of year is absolutely wonderful but it can get town to freezing some years even in August . It is possible to live in a ghost town . I know one year I thought I was fed up with the human race . I went on the Appalachain trail starting at Clingmans Dome and walking south to the end . I did not see a soul for days at a time . I felt true loniliness for the first time seeing all these wonderful things with nobody to share or discuss them with . It was very insiteful . I hope this thread stays going on topic wich is would you like to live in a 1800's town .

What I would like to know is why ? For everyone of us that means something different . To me it means a apothocary or store with naturepathic medicines like I saw in Williamsburg the colonial project of the Rockerfeller family and a simple salloon I could run profitabley and grow while sharing good times with people whose dream was in other pieces or componants of that town .
However the bottom line is you can do this . Volunteer and if your smart you can even get a small stipend and educational grant for schooling afterwards or run them concurent spending the summers as a volunteer and in school winters .

There is another Goverment agency similar to the Peace corps that often you can qualify for the educational money if you do the time in certain positions . If I remember the name I will place it back ...I think it is called the America Corps but I am not sure . Due to my health I wont be around here long . I hope this helps someone reach their dream .

actually I would'nt mind owning some out of the way land where I could build a "Keystone" ghost town. it would be kinda cool to educate the tourist on the way of life in those days. entertain the children, maybe make a few dollars selling food, lodging and souveniers and such. maybe an adjacent campground etc.. and even a slurpee machine!

Oh, and after all the women tourists are asleep, the men tourists can sneak out to my 1800's tavern tittie bar. We can show them some serious 1800's utters! and how it was done in the old days.

actually all kidding aside. It would be cool.

Nick, I owe you an appology. we / I thought you were a spammer. you have some cool Ideas. at first it sounded like a bogus plan david korish style, but your all right! don't pay to much attention to our kidding. maybe we do it because we don't have the freedom to do what your doing. Most of us are stuck paying our car payments and working to pay our debts.

In my opinion Russian chicks would do good in Alaska. just like that Smirnoff comercial.

Yeah Nick, I apologize as well, for thinking you were a spammer. It sounds like you've been down a rough road. Like you, I was sick for quite a few years, and places like this made me remember what it was like to be healthy, and do the things that I love. It kept the fire burning, so to speak.

All that I can tell you is don't let your dreams fade. It sounds cliched, but it's true. I saw a lot of people around me lose focus and give in to despair, and those results weren't good.

Stick in here with us Nick, exploring season is coming up, so there will be more trips posted. Hey, if nothing else, it's cheap entertainment here!

Actually, they have a place where you can live like the old-timers did: Silver Dollar City, Branson, Mo.:D

Has this thread gone anywhere else, is the town being built at all or is just an idea still? I think living in an 1800's style town would be awesome. It would take a lot of energy and monetary resources to make such a thing happen but it's definitely possible.

I'm just not too sure how you turn a chunk of private land into a US government recognized town. It was easy in the 19th century to make a town, but in the 21st it might be a little more challenging.

Hope the idea is still possible.

Well, it's true that "the good ole days" were just that! Vya, NV was a ghost town from the early 1900's in NW Nevada and we just went and bought it. Imagine the belief in self sufficiency we all have! We do have electricity but no phone--and our water comes right out of our natural springs. Located 22 miles east of Cedarville, CA all we had in the beginning were a couple of leaning buildings and corrals--in the past couple of years they have been repaired for current use as storage and horse/cattle pens! As for the 1880's, we've constructed the first building of our old town and have plans for several more. If you're ever in the area, stop by or visit our website for pictures and info (www.oldyelladogranch.com (http://www.oldyelladogranch.com)).;)

Is this idea, of starting a ghost town, really formulating into anything? I was just wondering, cause I'd sure like to get involved.

Its been my dream since I was a child, raised in CA and OR, to live in a ghost town. As I grew older, and as the theme parks have grown, I've thought it would be even more fun to run a working ghost town. Complete with horses and carriages to take people in and out of the "park".

Currently I live in Knoxville, TN, just a skip from Dollywood. I also know of 177 acres for sale between Knoxville and Sevierville. If anyone wants to really begin formulating plans, let me know!

Thanks,

I am selling 2 1/2 acre ranchettes to people of like minds and keeping the rest for myself and for community large garden, etc. I have lots of ideas and I feel that in time...and sooner than we would like to believe...we are going to NEED to ban together in order to make it.

Pretty much true. I think if someone had the money to get a chunk of land and sell lots off to people willing to build era type homes and business's, it be popular, and likely profitable to tourists. I always thought owning/running something like the B&B and saloon in Belmont or the town of Gold Point would be neat.

Alas, my income can't support my ideas.

Wry
03-21-2007, 04:31 PM
I was thinking of doing this. There are some Public Broadcasting Miniseries on the subject.

They did a "Reality TV" experiment where families had to live under the conditions of the time period.

The ones I have are called:
"Frontier House"
"1900's House"
"1940's House"

They were very instructive as an indication of how desirable it was to live according to these lifestyle conditions.

LauraA
03-21-2007, 05:01 PM
Wry, I recall the one "Texas Ranch House". It didn't seem like the sort of place I could live in...or even survive in. The flies, the crude living conditions, the flies, the heat, the flies, the dust and the spoiled food were what I remember most...did I mention the flies?
I don't think a lot of folks nowadays could go from the modern world back in time to a primitive lifestyle like that one except for short periods of time, despite their wishes to do so.
I love camping, but it's sure nice to get back home after a week or so. :)

Wry
03-21-2007, 08:54 PM
The mini-series showed there was a real problem if a community depends on wood for heat in the winter. It tends to cause deforestation.


Chopping a tree down and making firewood for one day's heat is much harder than paying $2 a day for modern electricity.


And women started feeling bad after a month without modern shampoo. And feminine hygiene products were home-made until the 1950's, I believe.


On the other hand, the Amish seem to be have sustainable economy with low technology. I wonder how.

LauraA
03-22-2007, 06:52 AM
The Amish I've seen (in my opinion) have a sustainable economy because of the products and services they provide to the modern community. When you drive through Amish country you see restaurant after restaurant, store after store, owned and operated by the Amish. Without the craving for good ol' Amish cooking, handmade furniture, produce and quilts by us "moderns," I doubt that their present day lifestyle would be nearly as sustainable.

Wry
04-22-2007, 12:12 PM
There is probably more to be learned from the Amish than we know.


I can only guess (Please excuse the ignorance) but after seeing a couple of websites selling expensive quilts and furniture, that these people are capable of (in theory at least) a high earning potential. They would have to buy matierials for these industries from other sources, hinting at an economy that is more sophisticated than it would appear or claim to be (but I don't really know).


Anyway, I'm sure its as close to the 1800's as is practical under present day circumstances. And they obviously have come as close to being satisfied with it, (or in general) as anyone could.


Satisfaction... an interesting , alien concept to me, as an American. Lack of satisfaction causes innovation, perhaps technical advance. This leads to unsustinable ecological destruction if pursued to its logical conclusion on a large scale (Unless I've missed the point of recent history).


Gasp. Is this what Ghosttowns.com is here for? The secret message behind it all? That civilization is headed toward...

That we should begin documenting its progress, while its still functioning, so we can capture this living history in the making.


Then we might see what Robert Crumb imagined when he did "A history of America"

I was wondering if you have completed the building of this town..or f you have ever even started. I am sure that a lot of us believe that we were born n the wrong century.

I had this idea about 5 months ago, long after the other person did, I searched it up one day and I found this thread. Thankfully I know I am not alone now...

I plan on making a Ghost town too. I have the plan all set up. It will be a bigger project than the one listed before. I would probably use Real old buildings, such as transporting them. instead of making new ones. I would want a big piece of land anywhere from 50 thousand acres to 100 thousand. Ted Turner owns 2 million almost, so I donīt think I am asking for too much. 50 thousand acres is a little over 70 square miles give or take a few. There would be two towns, and 2 Indian Camps. the rest would be Country. I have a plan for everything, and I am very serious about this project.

If anyone is seriously interested please answer a few questions. The survey is not complete now. But this will be just a brief survey. Thanks everyone.

E mail all Surveys to me at RShakRealty@yahoo.com

or post them here.

Can you live with out the internet?

Are you scared of Horses?

Is electricity a big part of your life? If so, could you ever live with out?

Do you believe in God?

Are you racist?

Do you hunt?

Do you know how to work on Farms?

Do you agree with the way America has progressed as much as it has in the last 100 years?

Would you be able to actually live in a Ghost Town? and not just say it is a dream come for a week and leave deciding it really wasnīt for you?

How many Children do you have?

If answered yes to the above question: Could your Children live with out modern day technology?

Do you understand that there will never be Cars allowed on the Property?

Would you be willing to donate to this cause? ( such as money, time, other goods, ideas, anything. )

How could you personally benefit the Town?
Please be specific. ( example: I am a Teacher and I would love to work with all the children, and so on. )


Thank you for taking the time to read and fill out this survey. Take care all!

Can you live with out the internet? Yes

Is electricity a big part of your life? If so, could you ever live with out? Isn't electricity a big part of many people's lives? I can make do without

Do you believe in God? yes

Are you racist? no

Do you hunt? no...I am more of a gatherer than a hunter

Do you know how to work on Farms? Food farms or animal farms? I can take care of animals, milk cows, collect eggs without getting pecked. I don't know anything about agricultral farming.

Do you agree with the way America has progressed as much as it has in the last 100 years? You have to be more specific. In industry, medical, science, yes. Morality and ethics? No.

Would you be able to actually live in a Ghost Town? and not just say it is a dream come for a week and leave deciding it really wasnīt for you? If said Ghost Town was in good shape and not something that would need extentive reconditioning, yes I would. I don't expect it to be the Hilton, but I don't want the roof to collapse on me, either.

How many Children do you have? One

If answered yes to the above question: Could your Children live with out modern day technology? I could see it as a problem for a while. I wouldn't feel comfortable having my child live in an area where I could not get help right away if something God forbid were to happen

Do you understand that there will never be Cars allowed on the Property? yes

Would you be willing to donate to this cause? ( such as money, time, other goods, ideas, anything. ) no. I'm broke. :(

How could you personally benefit the Town?
Please be specific. ( example: I am a Teacher and I would love to work with all the children, and so on. )CPR training, I love children, good cook, hard worker.

Not sure how alive it still is, but it definatly has merrit.

Although if i had the money i would do a little of both 1800's and modern, except off the grid totaly.

Lets face it, you need a freezer to keep food, sure they survived back then without one, but they could go and hunt or butcher cows anytime they needed meat. We are talking feeding a few hundred people, a freezer and safe preperation is important.

And as far as No internet, i'm not so sure that is a good idea either...
If you are thinking of making money from tourist, what better way to set up webcams around town and a website so travelers and vacationers can check in once in a while and see whats going on and get a feel for the place before they go..

I would do a mix of both, lets face it, if our ancestors had access to what we do you know they would be using it..

I love the idea of a simpler time and old west life style, hunting, fishing, ranching, growing own food, building own houses, etc. But to totaly get away from anything modern, i'm not sure is a good idea, if you have a hospital you need power for equipment.
think of a E.R. without power, how many people would die from a fixable problem.. Not to mention with the crazy weather we are having, it would be great to know what was going on storm wise espicaly if your food is counting on it...
To totaly detach from anything in modern world could back fire. Espicaly with the sue happy nuts there are out now days.
Plus if you are going to have tourist, you need a place for them to stay so they are comfe.. lets face it, the ones with all the cash are not going to pay a few hundred bucks a night to stay in a simulated 1800 town in 112 degree weather without any a/c. People are to spoiled now days.

But over all, its a great idea and could not only be a good way for those of us that would like to get back to some of the basics to not only raise awareness of living off the land and counting on each other, instead of the all mighty buck, and cover the cost involved through tourist.

I'd love to have the money to start something like that here in S.W. montana, buy some land up in the mountians. Which is decently priced.

Maby some day.:)

Besides we have to have our slurpees and BnJ's.

Welcome to the forum Sevrd. You're right in everything you said. Personally, I can't imagine living in 100š+ temperatures without air conditioning. I believe some folks romanticize what life used to be like in the early days of the old west....not to mention living without the niceties, like deodorant, scented soaps and disposable diapers. (By the way, congrats on that new baby of yours') :)
Anyone who can't imagine life without Slurpees, gets a thumbs up from me!

It's a fair question (IMO).
I seriously doubt anyone wanting to live in such a town has to worry about filling out a form which lists preferred sexual orientation.

On the other hand, it may be detrimental to be blatant about it, such as they do in places like San Francisco. At least stay cool until you can discover what's up, and what's OUT. :)

Here is an old town that looks late 1800s that can actually be lived in and where it is possible to earn a living ( Yucca Valley is just 4 miles away where a job could be had ). Moving up there from my current location in Desperate Hot Springs is something that I'm considering. Behind the rustic "old buildings" ( actually a little bit old as they were built back in the days of making "B" movies there ) there are folks living there. Anyhow a place worth visiting if in the area. Located 4 miles west of Yucca Valley off of hyway 62 which runs from down Palm Springs way up to and thru 29 Palms. Google it for a map. Pioneer Town.

Hey Wolfgang what is the name of the GT you're talking about?

It is right there in the foreground of the first picture. "Pioneer Town" . Was build by Roy Rodgers and others as a replica of an 1800s town for making movies . . . . ghosted and was pretty much abandoned for quite a while . . has been "resurected" for reenactment use and there are people living there as well.

Thanks I think it would be so cool to just travel all year round to all the western GTs and meet all the members of GT.com, rather than live in one place. Oh yea does anyone realize this thread has gone for ten years now?

Pioneertown was built in 1946 as a movie set for western movies, including the movies of Gene Autry (http://www.b-westerns.com/print.htm#gautry), The Cisco Kid (http://www.pioneertown.com/view/theciscokid.html), with Duncan Renaldo, (http://www.b-westerns.com/renaldo.htm)Annie Oakley with Gail Davis (http://www.cowgirl.net/honorees/Gail_Davis.aspx), Judge Roy Bean (http://www.desertusa.com/mag98/aug/papr/du_roybean.html) with Edgar Buchanan, Range Rider with Jock O. Mahoney, and Buffalo Bill Jr. with **** Jones. The movie set was to provide a place for the actors to live, and have their homes used as part of a movie set. Some of the original investors in the town were Sons of the Pioneers (http://www.b-westerns.com/nolan.htm), which the town was named after, **** Curtis (http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/findresults_actor.asp?search=****+Curtis) who was a professional villian in old movies, Bud Abbott (http://www.abbottandcostello.net/), Russell Hayden (http://www.b-westerns.com/hayden.htm), who played Lucky on the Hopalong Cassidy (http://www.b-westerns.com/hoppy.htm) series, Louella Parsons the Hollywood gossip columnist and Philip N. Krasne (http://www.pioneertown.com/view/theciscokid.html): "The Man Who Saved Pioneertown".

I posted this about a year and a half ago. Since then became aquanted with another place in that area which is a "old west town" developed originally for reenectors to gather for fun weekends playing "old west" and which has become self supporting as a location for western movie filming. I started construction on my own building in November . . . and then moved in to live there in the spring of 2011.

I think this is a terrific idea. I would definatly live here for a little while. Considering I'm still a kid myself, my whole family would come but im sure they would all be interested in living somewhere new for a bit. Keep us updated on the progress of your building!

I have posted several times on this thread. I lived in . . and now live near a replica old west town that is used as a movie set. Near by is Pioneer Town that was constructed by Gene Autry / Roy Rodgers and others and is used by reenactors, movie people and is lived in by a number of western enthusiasts. I saw a few days ago about Garnet Montana that is a real Ghost Town and the people are being sought to work / live there . . . .

: I posted a message in November, however, I have decided to not look for a ghost town to purchase, but instead have decided to build my own town. This town will be a replica of a late 1800's town and will be totally self-sufficient. However, residents will be screened and selection will be based on character, values, and habits. If you are interested, contact me for more information.
was this town ever completed? if so please share. I am very interested. have thought of this for some time now. this is the first time I ever investigated. pleasantly surprised to find there are others on the same page. please inform. I have many questions.
