    "An amazing backyard western village. Former teacher, Kenneth White spent over 5 years building a replica wild west village from the 1880's right in his backyard. White built everything from scratch including a saloon, a church with beautiful stained glass windows and an old-fashioned western jail complete with a prisoner in the bed. Ever the great teacher, Kenneth used his western village to teach kids about life in the old days. Sadly Kenneth passed away in 2016 and we dedicate this episode to his memory".

    Mr. White obviously had a passion for what he was doing. Added to that, he provided enjoyment for others. That's about as good as it gets.:cool:

    To me, a giant fan of the Old West, he done a great job...……..really great!!

    If any of you would like to see areas of The Old West, visit either or both Tombstone, AZ or Dodge City, KS. Actually, when we were at Cheyenne Frontier Days, they had different re-creations of The Old West, including Chuck Wagon Cooking for Cattle Drives.
