Volume 2 Frontier Town Abandoned Theme Park Then and Now
Frontier Town Abandoned Theme Park Then and Now
by Jennifer Renee St Pierre
2017 - 200 pages
Volume 2 of Frontier Town Then And Now includes the newly found journal kept by Edward Ovensen one of the first partners that started the Frontier Town Theme Park. He kept meticulous records for several years detailing staff information along with general day to day business records. The journal was found during renovations of the old homestead's basement where it was wedged in the floor braces hidden by particle board. This volume contains 1416 images and has ten full color pages including several images showcasing the works of Richard Dean photography from back "Then" and the beautifully captured "Now" pictures from Carl Heilman II that were taken during the 2016/2017 winter just after there was a storm blanketing the town with snow. The cover was a collaboration effort with Jennifer St.Pierre while she accompanied Carl on the photo-walk, leather photography by Norbert B. St.Pierre of Saints Photography and leather work by Mark Landon. The book highlights the longest employed cowboys that helped build Frontier Town- Dick Cory and Percy Fleming. This volume is a collection of typed stories Jennifer St.Pierre conducted interviews for and was edited by N. Christopher St.Pierre. As with what you saw at Frontier Town everything included in this book would not be possible if it had not been for the willingness of employees, volunteers and visitors to work together to make this project happen.
