Wild Western Town - Maybe

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Robert W May - Lethbridge Real Estate

A town in Alberta named Cochrane  is discussing the idea of renovating their main street down town area to resemble an old wild western town.  They hope that the concept would attract tourists who have an interest in seeing what an authentic wild west town would be like. 

 

Currently, the town of Fort Mcleod is the closest thing we have to an authentic old west town.  That town is used as the setting for many movies and television shows.  Recently the TV series FARGO was filmed there, and in the past many others.  In fact, I made my acting debut in the Truman Capote movie "In Cold Blood" which was filmed there.

Working with a Canadian Realtor® enlightened me to how "wild west" certain Canadian areas can be .  Hopefully Cochrane gets the boost it needs, awesome that you were in a movie! The closest I got to being on TV was being on the news a few times (all good reasons, LOL).

Good morning Robert.  I didn't know you were a movie star?  So what part did you play?

Good morning Robert. I like authentic. Converting a town back makes no sense to me. I live in Stockbridge, MA. It was Norman Rockwell's home and looks essentially as it was 100 years ago. I love it.
