Another Wild West Town Reference - 1880 Town
I'm always looking for new sources on western buildings and some how I stumbled across this one yesterday; 1880 town.
Its in South Dakota so I should make a trip out and visit it next year. Its not a "real" town in the sense that is an existing frontier town but it has been put together from buildings the owners purchased and transported to the site. Buildings range from the 1880 - 1920s. There aren't nearly enough pictures on the site but there are enough to see some of the more unique buildings on the site. I can't find it now but somewhere YouTube is a video of the inside of the saloon. Now I would question if this was a saloon or a theater. Most saloons don't have a stage, but the interior shots are very interesting none the less.
If by chance any of my followers are from SD and near Murdo and have pictures I would love to see them!
