In 1998 we started building a western frontier town. Now, we have achieved our goal and we have a total of 14 buildings, all furnished inside and out! We have a two-story Saloon, First National Bank, O.K. Corral, Blacksmith, Sheriff's Office, Log Cabin Jail, Church, Barber Shop, Bath House, Brothel, Lawyer's Office, Mercantile, Pony Express Station, Trapper's Cabin, Indian village location, wagons, buggies, covered wagons, props, outfits, etc? Every building is complete, inside and out with props and items which were of the time period, between 1840-1880.  We and fellow re-enactors portray such characters as; cowboys, Indians, Confederate & Union troops, Cavalry, Bushwhackers, Mountain Men, Saloon girls, portrayals of Custer, The Earps, and more!  This town has already sparked the interest from such magazines as "Persimmon Hill", Cowboys & Indians, Wild West Magazine and "The American West".  Our town was also featured in the 2008 August issue of the ?Wild West Magazine?.
The Old West of this page is defined loosely as the legend and reality of 19th Century America
 west of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers
 and anything and anybody associated with it, past and present.
 After all, the Old West is not really a time or a place but a state of mind.

Jim Janke's Emporium is a great site for many topics.  This portion is about the Old West, Native Americans and the Frontier.
Crazy Crow Trading Post is pleased to provide this Native American Indian Powwow & Mountain Man Rendezvous calendar listing to both promote these events and organizations and to assist you in learning of them.
Free how-to, DIY and recipes from the pioneer and settler handbooks of the 1800's.

Pioneer Handbooks is a free library of digitized and downloadable chapters of how-to instructions covering colonial building, farming, gardening, livestock, recipes, medicine, hunting and prospecting from rare and historic pioneer and settler handbooks.

These books taught colonist families how to successfully clear the land, build a log cabin or farmhouse, grow food, take care of farm animals, cook meals, fight diseases and heal their injuries.  They are the original colonial DIY guides.
