Deadmans Junction

     Ever since I was a little bugger I've had an ambition to build a re-creation of an old western town site. I'm not entirely sure why, but the idea has stuck with me all these years, and at this stage of the game is probably one of those items on the bucket list that I may not get around to. A man I know has actually acted out on his desire for a small scale western town that he calls Deadman's Junction.  Located northwest of Kamloops about a half hour, Deadman Creek was part of the fur brigade trail of the 1800's and has a varied history.
Matt Sandvoss has a background in movie set construction and has built theme sets for Universal Studio rides, he travels far and wide in search of era correct artifacts and building materials for his projects and clients.

Deadman Junction is visable from the highway between Savona and Cache Creek. Feel free to stop in for a tour around, Matt is always keen to talk about his little gold town.
