(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, the New York Times
posted an article about Jackson Hole, China, the community in the Hebei
Province that mimics the our western town.
The article states that, in the past 10 years the community has grown to
thousands of residents who live in the timber-framed houses, stroll Town
Square and frequent the local spa.
The article quotes a local Jackson Hole, China resident, stating that
"America represents wilderness and freedom, and also a big house,” and
that “The United States is cool.”
The New York Times describes Jackson Hole, China as "After weekend services
at the nondenominational church, many residents gather at the nearby
clubhouse, adorned with Navajo art and wagon-wheel chandeliers, for the
all-you-can-eat buffet featuring 'American pork chops,' smoked salmon and,
in a nod to local tastes, tree ear fungus."

West, in the Far East."
