For the cost it is worth stopping, but the grounds and buildings need a good cleaning and fixing. It looks as though it was amazing & drew a big crowd several years ago, but looks to be ignored now.

I'll begin my review by throwing the following info out there: my husband thought this was a bizarre, creepy roadside attraction that was dangerous for our two small children (almost 3-year-old twins) to explore. I LOVED IT! I thought it was a hoot and I would DEFINITELY recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure (and a sense of... More

This is a great historical site to see, many of the buildings are what were used back in the 1800's. While it is a self guided tour, you receive a tape player that gives you the history on each building. I get bored with history, but this lady was so great at giving us information it kept me going.

I have visited much better frontier towns: South Park City in Fairplay, Colorado & South Pass City in Lander, Wyoming. This one has a bunch of historically inaccurate exhibits that are not well preserved or restored.

Old rundown town that is a self guided tour with an old cassette tape recorder. Buildings r rundown and was scared to enter due to the fact they may cave in. Buildings r full of some artifacts but also junk . Cost $5/ person

I emailed this attraction prior to our visit to find out if they offered dress up opportunities for Girl Scout troops. While the response was not timely, they were very good to work with and dressed up not only the girls but us two adults as well. It may look a little shady from the outside but we were pleasantly...

I was so skeptical of this place when I first went there. It sounded just boring to me and then I began walking around the place. You can go inside the buildings, take pictures, listen to audio of the history. I fell in love with the place. It's not well known like some other tourist spots, but it's so well... More

Stopped by over 4th of July and enjoyed our visit, a pretty good value at $5 and our little kids were free. They had a blast looking in every single one of the little buildings. Evidently some of them (17 I think) are original structures. There are lots of cool antiques in each, it takes you back. We were given... More

It's not a 4 mile town, that's just the name of the old town. It's a ghost town located inside a large barricade. The buildings are much like they were when the town was alive. Admission is only $5 per adult and there is an old fashioned tape player to listen to the history as you walk around. Mostly an... More

This is a ghost town, you get a tape recording to follow through the town that tells you about each building. There is a general store, and several bunny's that run around the center of town. Had spoke to a woman in Custer who had taken her children and she said they enjoyed it. We were there on Friday evening... More
