Saloon still standing after second hurricane!

Recommended Posts

We were going to have to demolish the only stage that even partially survived Hurricane Laura 6 weeks ago so we were hoping Hurricane Delta would do the job for us.  No such luck!

Is there anyway to save what is left and build on that or is it just too gone?

Looks like some fill and a few repairs will set it straight.  Looks like a nice stage...

We've examined it and decided with the combination of rotten wood and broken support beams it can't be saved.  Our entire town will be redesigned from the ground up.

It's what you can't see in the photos that convinced us to tear it down and start from scratch - rotten wood, broken support beams - plus it wobbles when you press on it!

The saloon survived as everybody needed a drink or two after the Hurricanes.

Good luck with rebuilding your town.

It's an omen.  You should rebuild the saloon to its former glory.

It's easier to just start over rather than try to patch up something that's rickety and rotten.  Good luck rebuilding your Cowboy town.  I hope to get back down there someday to shoot on it after you get it finished.

We'll be proud to have you back again, Badlands Bob!
