Top Ten Towns 2023

Step 1 of 8

  • Your nomination should share your town’s contributions to preserving its Old West Heritage (1803-1920) in projects completed in 2022, as well as ongoing projects. Our area of interest largely tracks from the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 to the Mexican Revolution in 1920, but we are interested in earlier time periods as well, including European settlement, the era of exploration and pre-Columbian Indian history.

    The following pages contain our requested criteria and statistical data that will help us determine our top ten towns.
