Love Valley Western Town

Love Valley is a small western town in Central NC, just off I-77.  You have to see this place to believe it.   The town was created by Andy Barker who is now the towns Mayor.  He wanted to be a cowboy and created the cowboy town in 1954.   This place comes complete with horses, hitching posts, a sheriff, a jail, boardwalks, saloons, and even a general store and hardware store.  The roads are dirt, horses only except for loading and unloading.  
Apparently there are small ranches in the area around the town.  I was there on a quiet weekday morning but residents said the place is busy on the weekends.   Love Valley is near Union Grove NC, where the Union Grove Fiddlers Convention is located.
