I wasn't sure about his place but was glad we stopped. It's family run and they were there and able to give us some area history and answer questions. Very nice people! It's kind of run down but your kids will get a basic idea of life way back when. There is a lot of junk in the buildings toward... More

While the people running the place were very kind and personable, the "museum" would be better described as a junkyard. 50? dilapidated buildings housing period pieces and "antiques" designed to look like an old West town. This could be an awesome museum but it would take a ton on money which I don't think the owners have. The audio narrative... More

The place is owned and run by an older woman that is a real character. She does it all! The attraction is run down BUT worth the visit. She is trying to preserve history with a lot of love and little money. The displays are interesting and narrative is told with lots of humor. It is a must see before... More

We were running out of things to do, so we went to this old western town. While the lady behind the desk was interesting and seemed to know a lot of the history behind the town - the town itself was in poor shape, smelled awful and the tape recording they give you as a self guided tour was terrible....

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.
