I found this interesting article on CNN about Walt Disney's unfinished project to build a park in his home town of Marceline, Missouri.

... But Walt's nostalgia was tempered by seeing how modern times were changing small-town and rural life.

He had the idea of creating an attraction honoring that disappearing time. Henry Ford had done this with Greenfield Village, in Michigan. Walt Disney, with his Mouse millions, would now do the same in Marceline...
