Shouldn't have any trouble finding the Johnson Canyon Site. Paved road almost right too it. East side of the road.

So I take it this was a made up town for filming? Still interesting either way, good pics too.

Far as I know only one house on the site was a home that was lived in. Others were built for the TV series GunSmoke. Couple more were added for another movie. Last time I know it was used as a movie set was 2001. East of the Turn off for Johnson Canyon on Highway 89 is a turnoff for Paria Canyon. Another old west movie set. Need a 4x4 vehicle to get to that one though.

Cool, going to have to pay more attention to Gunsmoke the next time I see it :D
