North Hudson Exit 29
Located in the Adirondacks, Frontier Town was built by Art Benson in 1951. He had a long-held dream of building an amusement park that would allow families to experience the Wild West. When he started building the town he had no construction skills, no income, no real business plan, but he managed to turn all of this into a successful business. With its peak in the 1950s and 60s, the popular Western theme park drew thousands of vacationers each year and the themed hotel housed numerous guests until everything shut down and closed in 1998.
