Absolutely. Mackinac Island banned cars in 1898 (properly easier back then than now), with the official excuse that they would 'scare the horses' (http://www.hal.state.mi.us/mhc/autoshow/vehicles/mackauto.ht...)

They are still banned their today, but properly mostly because the town use it as a turist attraction.
