Will NY State Repurpose Iconic Structures in Abondoned Frontier Town? [PICS]
Once a major theme park in the Adirondacks, Frontier Town has been abandoned since 1998. Many kids, now adults, in the Capital Region, remember going to Frontier Town and being trusted back in time to the wild wild west but those are just distant memories.
The memories live on, but the property is run down. Will New York State help to restore and repurpose some of the old structures still standing but dilapidated? Many hope so.
What is Being Done with the Property?
The Essex County Department of Public Works had already started to cut back the overgrown weeds and grasses. They are also trying to salvage some of the structures.
What Are They Asking For From the State?
The Town of North Hudson, where Frontier Town is located along with Essex County are hoping the state will grant them two million dollars to help preserve and restore some of the structures according to the Times Union.
What Specific Structures Are They Hoping to Revitalize?
Under new plans, they are hoping to transform the rodeo arena into a modern one with a grandstand for horse shows, and barrel races, and to hold country music concerts.
