I can’t buy an old town so I will build one” Jay Gammons – Gammons Gulch, Benson, Arizona Re-creation of an 1890′s Town and Mining Camp Film, Photography and Event Location. Gammons Gulch is a Movie Set & Museum created as an Old West Town from the 1880′s to the 1930′s.
Gammons Gulch began the day Jay was exploring the desert in Benson, Arizona. Traveling down an old dirt road, he came across a for sale sign that read 10 acres available. The property had hills with a Gulch area next to a dry wash and Jay decided then and there that was a perfect spot for his lifelong dream of owning an Old West Mining Town and offering it as a production location.
From that day forward Gammons Gulch was transferred from a dream to a reality as Jay Gammons lovingly began to build board by board this location using buildings he gathered from the Old West era from all over the country.
