Westworld sets at Paramount Ranch go up in smoke

California is currently experiencing the deadliest fires since 1933. With around 30 people dead, the toll is extremely heavy. 250,000 inhabitants have been ordered to evacuate the area to avoid further tragedies. Many buildings have gone up in smoke in this vast area, including the Paramount Ranch.

That name may not mean anything to you, but you’ve probably seen it before. Opened in 1927 by Paramount Pictures, the Paramount Ranch covers nearly 11 km2 and appears in many films and series. The Adventures of Marco Polo, Wells Fargo, but also Doctor Quinn, Medicine Woman, Mentalist and more recently Westworld.

In the famous series recounting the exploits of androids living in a futuristic amusement park, the ranch serves as the backdrop for the town of Escalante. The church, which is particularly important in the plot, was already built before the film crews set up their cameras, but was given a more imposing bell tower for the purposes of the fiction. It is the only construction that survived the flames that devastated this mythical property.
