Many New Sights At Frontier Town The big black bears beautifully beautifully will be bared at Frontier Town for the 1971 season! This is just one of the many many new things to see at the Adiron-dacks Adiron-dacks Adiron-dacks most popular attraction, Frontier Town, North Hudson, NY located right at Exit 29 on the Northway halfway between Pittsburgh and Lake George. In keeping with the wave of nostalgia sweeping the country for old time days and things. Frontier Town has added to the Farmers' Museum section of the attraction with living displays displays of old time implements such as a horse operated saw- saw- many of particular interest to women such as the dog-operated dog-operated dog-operated treadmill washing machine and many other household appliances appliances of a century and more ago. s Moving on- on- you come to the ( new "old covered bridge" . .'. a faithful reproduction of the orig-i orig-i orig-i Vi a 1 New England "kissing bridge" that artists dearly love to paint ... It spans the placid pond of our youth where our fishing expeditions hooked so many of those big "ol lunkers" we so fondly recollect. Past the covered bridge is another another new feature ... A genuine steam powered sawmill. A 'relic from the Adirondack Mountains proud history of logging days when men were men and the women glad of it. Originally op-, op-, op-, erated at a village in th centre of the logging area for scores of years, the old steam powered sawmill eventually gave way to the more compact, and easier to -operate -operate electric sawmills. Dis-covered Dis-covered Dis-covered by one ofthe owners of . Frontier Town, it was pur- pur- chased and brought piece - by -numfoered-piece -numfoered-piece -numfoered-piece -numfoered-piece and re-as3em- re-as3em- re-as3em- re-as3em- bled and put into working order at Frontier Town where you can now see it rip its way through giant sized logs felled from the nearby forest. And of course the old things that have, made Frontier Town so popular for 20 years are still much in evidence . . . Plenty of free stage coaches to ride shotgun shotgun on . . . Casey Jones and his old 44 steam locomotive still get held up regularly to the delight-of delight-of delight-of trie passengers who ride free as part of the admission price. But don't get the idea that lawlessness lawlessness is condoned at . Frontier. Frontier. Almost like clockwork. The Dalton Boys ond other badmen who shoot-U-up shoot-U-up shoot-U-up shoot-U-up shoot-U-up in town are captured captured and subjected to swift western justice at the dunking pond thanks to sweet old hang- hang- :& v 1 CAVALRY TO THE RESCUE! in' judge Roy Bean himself. Yes, there's always plenty to see and do all day long at Frontier Frontier Town . . . and you participate participate in it too. That's why they say: "Frontier Town, where it's fun for the adults to bring the kids." Come see for yourself . . . It's a whole lot more than the little bit described here ... Come enjoy for yourself, "ad- "ad- America" in the unspoiled beau- beau- ... f uA l A- A- A 1.
