  • Shadowhawk .... Smithfield, NC

    on 10-26-15 we took our grandson to Shadowhawk - Bill's Western Town (a pretty good review) that is located at 494 Bonnie Ave. Smithfield, NC 27577 .... it was pretty much built by hand by William (Wild Bill) Drake over a period of several years .... he was in several western movies with John Wayne, Lee Marvin, and Clint Eastwood .... also was on TV's Gunsmoke and Bonanza .... admission is free, donations are appreciated .... a few years ago Bill's wife got sick and passed away .... during that time some of the town weathered and is in need of repair .... in its current condition it does have the feel of a real town in the Old West that was trying to survive .... the new owners have a great deal of work to do and seemed committed to the effort .... they have had 3 recent film crews shoot scenes .... for folks in the area, its worth spending a bit of time .... kids will love it
