I'd say both. The entry room designed like the movie, as well as Indy's and Henry Sr's bedrooms. Also have an Alaskan Malamute there to greet guests.
As for advertising - Here at the Raven, maybe work a deal out with Gilles V to advertise on TheRaider. Make a dot com domain for the attraction, etc.
This is what I am looking for, I knew you guys would know about this house. What else can you tell me about how it has been advertised for sale in the past? Thanks. Would this be a possible location for an annual fan meeting/movie watching? Thanks.
All, I am a newbie to your forum. I have been a big Indy fan for years. The Last Crusade Home is for sale in Colorado, myself and an investor are considering buying and making vacation/rental home with Indy's Childhood Home theme. This might be a way to make Indy more real to be able to stay in his childhood home. Please help me with ideas.... Thanks.
Sorry, that would be a colossal waste of money. Anyone who says different is lying to you.
$149900 / 4br - Indiana Jones' Real Boyhood Home!! (Antonito)
Date: 2011-01-22, 10:32PM MST
This is the original set used as Indiana Jones' boyhood home in the movie 'The Last Crusade'! It is located in beautiful and historic Antonito, Colorado in the San Luis Valley. The 2,400 square foot house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, is in perfect shape and surrounded by endless country and small towns, perfect for anyone with a love for the open range. Everything is still authentic to the movie from the scene where Indy is forced to count to a hundred in Latin to receiving his legendary fedora in the living room. It even still has 'Jones" written on the mailbox! Also in the area is the historic Cumbres and Toltec Railroad Train that passes by the house every once in a while just like the circus train in the movie! (It's actually the same railroad line, and you can ride it!). The home is also located close to several premier snowboarding and skiing locations in the mountains nearby. This is a MUST-HAVE for anyone who loves Indiana Jones and a great buy for its significance. It makes for a wonderful vacation home, residence or whatever your heart desires.

Indiana Jones Home
Our 4 bedroom, 4 bath home located at 502 Front St., Antonito, Colorado was featured in the blockbuster Steven Spielberg movie, 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'. In September of 1988, Antonito was home to the set, crew and stars of the blockbuster film. The film starred Harrison Ford and Sean Connery and was released in May of 1989. You will also recognize the local Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad train from the opening scenes of the “Last Crusade” where young Indy is battling grave robbers for the Cross of Coronado. This memorable scene features the boy hiding in a circus train where he must rely on his skills with a bull whip to avoid a lion and to crawl through a car filled with deadly snakes. His fear of snakes and the scar on his chin are born during this exciting scene.
