Cow town

Pioneertown was built in 1947 as a set for western movies, according to Hester Guinan, who has lived in the town for 22 years and has been its Postmaster for 17 years.

Among the many cowboy sagas shot there were “Jeopardy” with Barbara Stanwyck, most of the Gene Autry and Cisco Kid films and recently “Tell them Willie Boy is here,” starring Robert Redford.
