Gunsmoke was first a radio series that ran from 1952 until 1961, and then a television series that ran from 1955 until 1975. It remains one of the longest running television series of all time, a tribute to the lasting power of the western as a genre. The show is loosely based upon the setting and characters of 1870's Dodge City. So, not surprisingly, the town pays tribute to such attention in its walk of fame, mostly along Front and Gunsmoke streets within the old downtown. The actors and characters of Gunsmoke fame are memorialized by large bronze medallions, about the size of manhole covers, paved into the sidewalk along the streets of Gunsmoke and Front.
