Where in the Valley Contest: Fantastic Frontiersman

Can you identify this mystery man?


This handsome folk hero towers over all who visit the adjacent vintage shop known for its seven rooms of curated oddities and antiques. Appropriately set in a mountainous habitat he’d call home, the spot is named after a pair of brothers who were supposedly crushed under their 136-ton mass of “collectibles” and is only open three days a week.

Can you identify the name and location of this formidable frontier explorer and his treasure trove of curiosities? Submit your answer and memories of this location below. The first reader with the correct response will have their name in our next issue. Good luck!
