This was a cute little village right off the interstate and a great stop for us. We enjoyed the buildings in the frontier village and laughed at some of the "newspaper ads" found in the post office and saloon. It is also the site of the world's largest buffalo so it is a great picture spot. If you are driving on the interstate and see signs for this place, stop and visit. It is worth it if only for a little pit stop.
