It wasn't long after that that I found myself on an impromptu tour with a couple of Belgians who drove into town. We were shown around the various buildings along main street, including the train station. Locals have actually turned Rowley into a heritage community of sorts - not exactly authentic, but an interesting sampling of prairie history nonetheless. The grain elevators were also restored not too long ago and are quite a sight to see.
One of Rowley's claims to fame is that it was apparently a shooting location for the 1994 Brad Pitt film, Legends of the Fall. I was also told of Rowley's popular pizza parties held in Sam's Saloon once a month that apparently bring people out to the town in droves. What else can I say about this place? It's not at all what I expected, which turned out to be for the best.
