with the price of gold....

Apacheland movie set.

 

Television series such as The Rifleman with Chuck Connors, Wyatt Earp with

Hugh O’Brien, Wanted Dead or Alive with Steve McQueen, Have Gun, Will Travel

with Richard Boone, The Virginian, Rawhide, and several episodes of Little House

on the Prairie produced television heroes for many us. Audie Murphy, Ronald

Reagan, Kenny Rogers, Elvis Presley and Jason Robards were just some of the

silver screen feature length stars who performed for the cameras at Apacheland.

Apacheland was first planned to be an amusement park and film studio late in

1959. Original construction on the set began on February 12, 1960, and the groundbreaking

ceremony was held on March 19, 1960, with Will Rogers Jr. being on

hand.
