Oldwest

The American Old West, or Frontier period dates roughly from the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1806 through to the start of the 20th Century (around 1910.) The discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in California in 1849 prompted a tidal wave of eager settlers surging westward that didn't even begin to ebb until the turn of the century--this is the period that is most often associated with the "Wild West" era (from about 1849 to as late as 1912.)

The style for this period of the United States is often referred to as the Old West, the Wild West or the Prairie Period. As such, it occupies the same time frame as the Regency as well as the Victorian eras, but Frontier architecture and fashions were much simpler. You'll want to use some Victorian items in your lots, but mostly reserve the fancier items for your well-to-do Sims.

Other RecommendationsEdit

Besides using the above resources, Frontier Period neighborhoods can use various furnishings and items from other historical periods, such as Victorian, Regency/Federal, Colonial/Rococo and even Medieval. Old West homes that are more rural would tend to have more simplistic architecture, furnishings and fashions, while Old West homes that are actually supposed to be within town or city limits are more likely to have more Victorian Era items in them.
