Hollywood Western Town

I thought that some of your readers might be interested in a good stop off on highway 14 near Madrid. Near a little spot in the road called Lone Butte on county road 45 is a movie set built in 1969 for the movie the Cheyenne Social Club. It is a full scale old west town that is open to the public in the summer.

Ah, the Cheyenne Social Club -- starring Hank Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, Shirley Jones, and David Cargo, the then-governor of New Mexico.
