Pioneertown was founded in 1946 by a group of Hollywood personalities led by cowboy actors Dick Curtis and Russell Hayden as a permanent 1880s town for filming western movies. On Sept 1, 1946 Roy Rogers broke ground for the first buildings. Assisted by the Sons of the Pioneers from whom the town takes its name, over 200 movies and TV serials were filmed here as were an unknown number of background shots for other productions. TV westerns including the Gene Autry Show, Cisco Kid, Annie Oakley, and Adventures of Judge Roy Bean were filmed here. Pioneer Bowl, Hayden Ranch and Mane Street have been designated by the State Dept. of Parks and Recreation as historical resources.

Today, Mane Street still retains its old west image. The Pioneertown Post Office is said to be the most photographed Post Office in the entire United States.
