    I’ve been to Old Tucson only twice—–so far. Once in ’71, then in ’73 where I accidentally walked onto the “Gunsmoke” set, then in ’93. I loved it. It’s a great place to walk around when you have a passion for westerns as I do.

    Who’s bright idea was it to rebuild Old Tuscon after the fire with completely different buildings than the old ones, and stupid looking as well? When people like my self wanted to go to Old Tuscon, we wanted to see what we had seen in the movies!!! When we went in the late 90’s we were very disappointed that the old structures were not rebuilt! It would have been SO simple! They did it at Melody Ranch Studios when they first rebuilt that! What a blunder! If you really want to Old Tuscan restored to it’s glory days, rebuild it THE WAY IT WAS!!!
