Well, I'm really liking Sweetwater - but maybe that is because I recently caved and bought the whole Blue Moon old west building set (actually, all of the 'sets').  Will be combing with buildings from Stone Mountain and Peter Pig to create a version of my town until I get around to making progress on the scratch built buildings.  Anyone care to guess which scale?   lol

Do like the name Rose Creek, though.   ;)

More, please.  Never enough Old West towns in miniature.

Oh my!!!  These pages are going to be bookmarked for sure.  The wealth of visual fuel for the mind is incredible.

I hope to make a small contribution in the near future.  Small in overall play area and in the scale I plan to use (1:00 or so).  To be more specific, I plan to use HO scale kits and 18mm figures (mostly Blue Moon).

Thanks all.

Herewith a pic of my Old West town, inspired by the fantastic towns I have seen here on LAF.

My town is largely made up of printed paper. But it is very cheap and quick to put together an entire town - I mount the paper onto foam board so the buildings are light and durable. Worth considering especially for players with many projects and playing multiple periods and or a limited budget.

Good looking!  You might want to check into Wargame Vault.  IIRC there are a few free guides with  suggestions for making paper structures more three dimensional.  Interesting and I think improves the appearance of the buildings especially if printed ones are mixed with others, but by no means necessary.

You can add De Lancy to the list.  It's currently under construction as detailed here:

I'm working on the second building and will be ordering some MDF kits in due course. 
I came into this world with nothing...you can guess the rest
