We had a great tour with John for over 2 hours with our two grandchildren. This was probably one of the most thorough and captivating tour and I have traveled all over the world.

Outstanding collections of everything from the real pre-1930 west - from doctor's office, dentist office, general store, habadashery, livery stable -carriage house, church, Chinese laundry hut, etc. Well worth the stop to view it all! And, go along on the "guided tour".
