    Love the Blacksmith shop. The gun-play on the Main street was entertaining. I have lived here for over 30 years and this was my first visit. Will come back again.  more »

    The free Sunday was amazing! We did not anticipate a free visit, but it just happened. The interpretive displays and buildings were quite entertaining. We ended up spending about 4 hours there. I would go back! Worth your while.

    We enjoyed Cowtown. It is set up to look like a city of the 1870's although we enjoyed modern day a.c. In the buildings! They have brought in a few more buildings since we were last here years ago.

    This place is very rich in history. The group that came up with this idea are heroes for saving all of these old buildings. You really feel like you are in an old western town. And about 70% of the old building are air conditioned.

    Really cool replica of what a Midwestern town looked like. Great for kids of all ages! Bring water during the summer months as it gets hot. A bit of walking is involved too.

    It was fun for free on Sundays. Nice big layout with plenty to check out. Will go again but earlier to see the shootout at noon.
