“a Hollywood movie set gone ghost town”
This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner.
At first site, this appears to be a real ghost town, abandoned adobe buildings along the clay banks of the Rio Grande. The clay often turns flooded ponds left behind by high waters red, and along with the decaying nature of the buildings in "town", the entire setting feels very real.
The Contrabando consists of an original adobe building called 'La Casita' and several later additions that became part of the Contrabando during its use as a movie set. The movie set was constructed in 1985 for the Roy Clark film Uphill all the Way.The site has been used as a set for nine movies including John Sayles' 1996 movie Lone Star; as well as Dead Man’s Walk and Streets of Laredo, which were part of the Lonesome Dove miniseries based upon the novel by Larry McMurtry.
Park, get out, explore the buildings, dip your feet in the Rio Grande!
