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.
