where is 1883 filmed

Streaming on Paramount+, 1883 is a prequel series to Yellowstone that transports viewers back in time to the Wild West. It’s a thrilling journey that’s both gripping and dramatic.

The show begins in Fort Worth, Texas, where the Dutton family leaves their home and heads to Montana. It’s a risky journey filled with conflict and chaos.

Fort Worth Stockyards

Over the years, Fort Worth has transformed into a modern city. There’s a booming arts scene and a sports arena, but it still has that time-warp Western feel.

But now, the Stockyards is facing a tug-of-war between tradition and progress, between preservation and development. It’s an invisible fight, and it’s one that has resulted in change that’s harnessing the neighborhood’s authentic heritage and bringing longtime tradition back to life.

In the summer of 2021, the Stockyards were chosen as the home of the prequel series 1883, created by Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan. The show focuses on Bass Reeves, a former slave who became one of the first Black U.S. deputy marshals west of the Mississippi River in 1875.

The Stockyards are the heart of Cowtown and serve as a tourist hub for Old West gunfight reenactments, daily cattle drives, restaurants, and entertainment venues. It’s an ideal spot to step into a mythic Texas. And now, with a little help from new forces, it’s gaining a modern veneer too.

The Alps Building

The Alps Building, located at 222 West Exchange in Fort Worth, is where the Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency scenes were filmed. This two story ochre brick building has been home to many businesses throughout the years.

The building was restored and converted into office space in 1983. Currently, it hosts offices for multiple tenants.

Throughout the series, the Alps Building was also used as the livery paddock and the exterior of Hooker’s Grill. Fans of 1883 can visit this location to see the filming locations and get their own tattoos in honor of the show!

Traditional Alpine architecture is an emblem of sustainability. Its solutions, based on the needs of mountain life, were implemented in the past thanks to the know-how of mountain populations.

Farina’s Winery & Cafe

1883, Taylor Sheridan’s prequel to Yellowstone, is a fan-favorite. With great acting, drama, and gorgeous scenery, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the best shows on television today.

The series follows the Dutton family as they travel across the Western United States in the 19th century, escaping poverty and seeking a better life for their children in Montana. The show stars Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sam Elliott, and LaMonica Garrett.

Like its parent show, 'Yellowstone,' 1883 was primarily filmed in Texas and Montana. Bosque Ranch Headquarters in Weatherford was the primary filming location for the show, along with Fort Worth’s Forth Worth Stockyards district and Granbury, Texas’ Farina’s Winery & Cafe. Other filming locations included Amarillo’s 6666 Ranch and Park County, Montana.

Bosque Ranch Headquarters

A big part of the filming for 1883 took place in Weatherford, Texas, at Bosque Ranch headquarters. Located in the heart of the Brazos River Valley, it boasts weekend events, competitions, rodeos, and dining experiences.

The ranch is owned and operated by 'Yellowstone' and '1883' creator Taylor Sheridan, who also owns the famed 6666 Ranch in Guthrie, Texas, according to the Fort Worth Film Commission. Sheridan’s projects have brought millions of dollars to the area and raised Fort Worth’s profile, Parker said.

Sheridan is currently developing a series about frontier lawman Bass Reeves, which will film in Fort Worth next year. The project is a follow-up to '1883,' which was filmed in the Stockyards district. It is expected to attract millions of dollars in production and will raise the city’s profile.
