Jackson Hole China promotes western values in the far east

(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."
