  • description:
    Classic setting & backdrops for old western movies. This place was made for film. Not a real ghost town per say, but still worth a visit. The Cisco Kid, Annie Oakley & Roy Rogers all happened here on MANE Street -- on film. From the mid 1940's, movie studios & TV production companies have used this place as old western sets. Now a days it's more of a tourist attraction w/ live music on occasion.
