The prime attraction and visitor center at Bonnie Springs Ranch, the Old Town contains all the facilities and conveniences necessary to enjoy a stay near Red Rock Canyon.
The Wild West is still as wild as ever in Bonnie Springs Ranch’s Old Nevada Town, a replica of an authentic 1880s mining town. Bonnie Springs Ranch was founded in 1843 as a stop for wagon trains headed to California along the Old Spanish Trail and endures as a tourism and recreation center. The Old Town, opened in 1974, revisits the site’s history and closely follows the layout of traditional 19th century western towns to allow the visitor to experience Nevada (and Red Rock Canyon) as it once was. The spirit of the era lives on in the live entertainment (performed Wednesday through Sunday), as audiences are treated to recreated gunfights, melodramas, and hangings, and the Nevadan artifacts displayed throughout Old Town as part of the Old West Museum.
As seen on Ghost Adventures (season 4, episode 11), the ranch has left visitors stricken with stories of paranormal activity throughout the years. From ghoulish school children to reanimated wax figures, rumors persist as to the haunting of Bonnie Springs and the Opera House in particular. Appropriately, the entire Old Town area is refitted as a haunted house and zombie turf during October as part of “Bonnie Screams”.
The restaurant is open daily from 9am to 9pm! We are busy serving up the best burgers, chicken, and ribs in the West. Try our famous authentic bison burger! We have live entertainment Friday and Saturday nights and stay open a little later.
The site includes among its buildings: restaurant, gift shops/general store, stamp mill, photo gallery, schoolhouse, wax museum (accessible during tours), blacksmith’s shop, mine, shooting gallery, opera house, petting zoo, chapel, and saloon (available for larger parties and serviced by catering).
