Step back in time to the post-Civil War era as you wander around the 12 acre downtown. It is authentic to the last detail, including the Silver Dollar Saloon advertising "meals 25 cents" the Old Time Photo Shop,and the gallows. Of particular interest is the variety of horse-drawn vehicles casually parked everywhere, as if their owners were in town shopping for the day.
The highlight of the ranch is the massive log structure used as the Cartwright family home. Outside, you can test your skill at the Moonshine Shootin' Gallery, make new friends at the Petting Farm, pan for gold at the Lucky Bonanza Mine and ride a horse at the Pony Rides.
