Fossil Cabin - Made of Dinosaur Bones
Medicine Bow, Wyoming
The walls of this starter home were built out of 26,000 mortared-together dinosaur bones, which were dug out of a nearby ridge known as Como Bluff. The Boylan family -- Thomas, wife Grace, and son Edward -- completed the building in 1933. Thomas Boylan designed it to be roughly the size of a giant Diplodocus.
It was dubbed "Oldest Cabin in the World" by Robert Ripley, and an exterior sign reads "Believe It Or Not!." Another sign reads "Fossil Cabin."
The unique home/attraction was sold to the Fultz family, who still own it today. When we visited in 1991, manager Ethel Nash, 83, allowed us in after paying the dollar admission. There were rock and dinosaur and sealife fossil displays, some for sale.
Today, even though the Fossil House is no longer open, it makes for a decent photo op.
The Como Bluff Dinosaur Site is also interesting, but currently closed to the public.
