Buckstop Junction reviews
The town itself was very cool and historical. The tour guide on the other hand wasnt great. He was constantly coughing, he was hard to understand/hear, and he didn't really share anything historical..... more »
Great little "town" for a wedding venue. Went to one here last year and it felt like we were in our own little town for the night! more »
Excellent place to visit that most people forget is right in plain sight! The tour guides are very knowledgeable and for the low price you pay, there is so much to see!! If you're in the bisman area, this is a great place to visit and help keep our local history alive!
Well taken care of old buildings and antique equipment.
