Like all America, Pioneertown has a history, starting point in its development. In the case of this little old West town, the idea was born when Dick Curtis, a cowboy actor discovered that the country it is around what is now Pioneertown afforded the perfect setting for the making of western movies.
Movie stars who want to get away from it all have usually done that escaping in space and taken off for Malibu, Palm Springs or Europe. Recently these seeking folks have discovered another dimension. They’ve gone back in time, too, to a place called Pioneertown. a desert mountain resort where, according to its enthusiasts, “the old west lives again.”
