Description:      Basically, this is a collection of authentic and historically significant Old-West buildings gathered up from various locations in the Dakotas and Nebraska. Many of the buildings were moved to the 14-acre site from elsewhere in the region and restored to their original appearance.
    The centerpiece is a 14-sided barn built in 1919, but other buildings date from 1881, 1886 and 1892. The town also features antique farm machinery, wagons, a steam locomotive and other period exhibits. The town is also home to three movie stars: Buck, who played "Cisco," in "Dances with Wolves" and Jim and Jake, the lead mules also in "Dances with Wolves."
