I remember going to Frontier town when I was 9 or 10 with my parents . My older brother always went away for two weeks fishing in Canada with a club he belonged to .
While he was gone my parents would take me camping usually in the Adirondacks and we would take day trips from the campsite to different attractions . One year we went to Frontier Town . I can’t describe how thrilled I was to be there , we only went once as things changed the following year for my parents but I bugged them every year to go back .My memories is fuzzy but I do remember the cavalry and the stagecoach hold up . I especially remember the fun atmosphere , the train and the horses.
A few years ago a friend at work came up and asked if I had ever been to Frontier Town and when I answered yes , He explained that he had went on a trip with his family and was looking for things he did as a kid . Seems Frontier Town stuck with him too , because he found it . It must have been before the auction but after they were closed because he said it was abandoned , but he was able to walk around the property and see all the buildings . When he told me this I was saddened because I would have loved to take my younger children (9 and 10) to it .I was also sad that I never took my older children (21 and 25) to it before it closed for good in 98 .
I am truly sorry its gone and wish I could have went more when I was a kid . I looked for info on it today because I was coming back from the state fair and telling my kids about all the places my parents would take me in New York . Like Enchanted Forest (pre water park) Santa’s workshop and Frontier Town . Although I had bee to the others more because they were closer to where we lived it was Frontier Town that stuck in my head the most because to me it was the most realistic
