More About Gammons Gulch Movie Set and Museum
“Step back into time” as founder Jay Gammons has and enjoy the fond memories of days gone by. Imagine yourself stepping back in time, walking down the main street of an old west town. In the distance you hear sounds of a honky-tonk piano slip in and out of the still, eerie silence as you walk past the saloon.At any moment you expect to see a cowboy step out of the doorway, or hear the pounding of a blacksmith’s hammer. Or maybe feel the rumble of driven horses as the stagecoach churns up the dust as it rolls into town.
The place is real; a little imagination is all you need to complete your authentic and memorable “step back in time” experience. We invite you to join Jay on his tour that is given when you arrive at Gammons Gulch. Please wear closed toe shoes, brimmed hats and use sunscreen.
