This Tiny Town In Arizona Was Once An Abandoned Movie Set…And It’s Incredible
Arizona has no shortage of Western relics. Across the state, you’ll find ghost towns, mock ghost towns, Western dinner shows, and quite a few museums dedicated to a time when life in Arizona was extremely violent and dangerous.
Another favorite: those sites where Western movies were once filmed. In some cases, the filming locations were rugged landscapes, perfect for wide shots of heroes riding their horses. Others took place in small towns or even on movie sets designed specifically for the film. Today, we’re going to take a look at a movie set once abandoned before getting a new life as a Wild West attraction.
Trail Dust Town is located at 6541 East Tanque Verde Road in Tucson. You can find details about hours, fees, and events on their website or Facebook page.
