The tiny town of Love Valley was founded in 1954 by a man who had two ideas.

1- He wanted to live in a Christian community and

2 -he wanted to be a cowboy.

His name was Andy Barker and before his death in 2011 he moved to the mountains to make his dream come true.

Barker did not imagine building a theme park with tourists at all.

He simply wanted a certain lifestyle but today his tiny town of love Valley invites tourists from all over.

The town was incorporated in 1963 and Barker’s Father was named Mayor.
