Tin Star Ranch Volksmarch

This "old west" town with originally created as a place for old west re-enactments. It was just building fronts, not complete buildings. The newly added Longhorn Palace is a complete replica of an 1880's saloon complete with a 30 foot oak bar.   They have added guest houses and the "Tin Star Ranch" can be reserved for meetings or as a place to celebrate special occasions. It is built on a hillside and provides panaramic views of the surrounding hills and pastures.
