Pioneertown: Celebrating the culture of the American West for 75 years

PIONEERTOWN, California – Pioneertown, a real town of about 300 people, is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee. Many call the small town a modern day Mayberry.

“It’s a working Hollywood movie set built by the old movie cowboys,” said Greg Herring, an actor and gunslinger for Pioneertown.

“A city rich in history. And amazingly unique and diverse people in a part of Americana and the American West,” said Paden Blackwell, President of Pioneertown.

“Designed and built in 1946 by 18 founders, principally Dick Curtis, who was a Western film star,” said Curt Sautter, Pioneertown’s curator.

There are shops, restaurants, a museum, and fun, family-friendly shows that celebrate the Wild West.

“The fact that we could just stand around and have 150 people in our audience from all over the world is just a wonderful adventure,” said Blackwell.

“We’ve been here for 75 years and we’re still going strong,” said Kenneth Gentry, a historian.
