All that remains of Apacheland Movie Ranch™ are two historic buildings that were moved 7 miles north to the Superstition Mountain Museum. The Elvis Chapel and Apacheland Barn were spared from the bulldozers and restored to their original state when the movie ranch was first built. Both structures serve as a living memorial to the hundreds of actors and dozens of TV shows and movies that were filmed at Apacheland Studio™ on Kings Ranch Road in Gold Canyon, Arizona. Since 2009, the Official Apacheland Days™ is held every year at the Superstition Mountain Museum.

The future Gold Canyon Museum will work closely with Superstition Mountain Historical Society and local historians to preserve the history of this wonderful 'Old West Town' and heritage. Local cowboys and residents such as Tex Barkley, Julian King, Don Donnelly, Spencer Stewart and many others built the wonderful town we all call Gold Canyon. Apacheland Days™ can only be sanctioned by the Superstition Mountain Historical Society in locations other than the current museum grounds. Apacheland Days™ is a trade name of Superstition Mountain Historical Society.
The original Apacheland™ movie set is located at 4369 Kings Ranch Road and is still vacant. As of 2013, the remaining 13 acres have been spared the fate of urban development for now.
