About Our Town

How We Came to Be

Larry and Janet ‘Missy’ Iams have been building an 1880’s western town for several years now, which is now 75% completed. Their goal is to preserve the American old west history. With some still under construction, their accommodations and activities include a hotel and log cabin, dance hall and saloon, billiard hall, gun fight reenactments, old-time photography, stagecoach and buggy rides, chuck wagon dinners, dances/classes, weddings, private parties, mounted shooting, and old-time barber hair cuts and shaves.

The Town of Gabriella brings the wild west alive again with live gun fight reenactment shows at our yearly event. Currently being utilized as a movie set and film location. If you are interested in using our town for your next film site, please Contact Us today so we can help make your movie a reality.
