Also located at the Supersitition Mountain Museum are what is left of Apacheland Movie Ranch which was built in 1958. The rest of Apacheland was destroyed by two different fires. Some of the TV shows filmed at Apacheland included: Zane Grey Theater, Wanted Dead or Alive, Have Gun Will Travel, Death Valley Days and the Gambler II. Some of the movies filmed here included: Purple Hills, Blood on the Arrow, Ariona Raiders, Charro, The Haunted and Blind Justice. (One of our full time friends, Paul, went with us this excursion.)

Charro starred Elvis Presley and during that movie the original steeple was removed from the Chapel and a specially made on was blown off. Arizona Raiders starred Audie Murphy with a gun battle that took place at the barn.
