You've already missed the Old West reenactments season (it runs April through October), but you can get a good seat for next year's if you snag this two bedroom, two bathroom house in Pioneertown near Yucca Valley, via Realtor.com. According to its website, "Pioneertown was built in 1946 as a movie set for western movies, including the movies of Gene Autry, The Cisco Kid, with Duncan Renaldo, Annie Oakley with Gail Davis, Judge Roy Bean with Edgar Buchanan, Range Rider with Jock O. Mahoney, and Buffalo Bill Jr. with Dick Jones. The movie set was to provide a place for the actors to live, and have their homes used as part of a movie set." The 1990 house sits on more than 10 acres on Curtis Road (perhaps named for original investor/western movie villain Dick Curtis?) and has a "passive solar design," two master suites, a horse barn, a pool, a fireplace, and radiant heating. Asking price is $750,000.
