The guides will tell you the history of the Four Mile Old West Town. Excellent for children to learn how the town(s) were developed. A lot of interesting artifacts for the price of $5. It was sad to see that parts are falling apart.

This place is great. The way things used to be. Not just the old stuff but the way it is set up. There are no barriers, you can touch the stuff. Also it's the way it was because you should keep an eye on the kids as you go through. This gives you the opportunity to show them how things... More

The staff was so sweet and accomadating. Also very knowledgeable. But the place is falling apart. Only $5.00 to get in and could be very educational if it was fixed up a bit. Old, but we enjoyed ourselves

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
