Medical offices. Ghost Town and Freak Lamb

Laws is really quite a gem. There is a railroad station, an old locomotive, school house, mining operations bldg, printing office, barbershop, etc. It is actually a collection of buildings from the area brought together to form kind of a "living museum." The exhibits offer a wonderful variety of period pieces displayed inside rather authentic settings with cards explaining the era significance. There are uniforms, ranching and agricultural supplies, firearms, a foundry, etc.

The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The only negative is the lack of access for wheelchairs, but other than that it is only about 5 or 6 miles from Hwy 395 in Bishop.

This place is a great stop, especially for kids! Loved the bottle collection room, and the old school house.

Ghost Town and Freak Lamb

The 2-headed lamb looks more like a Steiffe toy, but the buildings are well worth perusing.
