Here is a shot of the original movie set where much of the original Gunsmoke television series was filmed. There is also a link to additional pictures. This shot shows the "Longbranch Saloon". In the background you can see a modern ranch house. Quite a contrast.

These photos were taken about five years ago, in early evening. There is a fence surrounding the property where the movie set is located and was not open to the public. These photos were taken from a distance of about 200 yards. A local farmer from the other side of the road came out and talked to us. He said he didn't know what was going to become of the property. He also told us that, in addition to Gunsmoke, a large number of movies were filmed at this location.

As is typical of movie sets, these buildings are empty shells. The interior scenes were filmed on a sound stage.

There is a shot of what appears to be a train station but there are no tracks.

Here is the "Longbranch" and next to it, upstairs, is where the doctors office was located.

Additional pictures

I do not know the current status of this site.

I will be posting separately, photos of the Pariah Canyon movie set where over 200 Western movies were shot. It is about 40 miles east of the Gunsmoke set.
