    Thumbs up

    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.

    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?

    One stop to make then would be to Ari-Zona. Definately need to meet up with Joe. One h*** of guy to hang with when ghost towning...and if he gets too out of hand...just cook him up some spam and give him a beer!

    Pioneertown was built in 1946 as a movie set for western movies, including the movies of Gene Autry, The Cisco Kid, with Duncan Renaldo, Annie Oakley with Gail Davis, Judge Roy Bean 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, which the town was named after, **** Curtis who was a professional villian in old movies, Bud Abbott, Russell Hayden, who played Lucky on the Hopalong Cassidy series, Louella Parsons the Hollywood gossip columnist and Philip N. Krasne: "The Man Who Saved Pioneertown".

    Wow this sounds awesome. I've always felt that I should have been born in a different time. I think I'm interested.
