Gas Station Town of Tumbleweed.

Gas Station Town of Tumbleweed

Field review by the editors.

Laramie, Wyoming

The "Gunslinger 66" (Phillips 66) gas station has been a Laramie tourist stop since at least the 1970s, and probably before that. Inside the mini-mart are animal heads on the walls, displays of Old West artifacts in glass cases, and a good selection of postcards. Out back, behind the diesel pump island, is a full-size fake-front Wild West main street, complete with a boardwalk sidewalk and a livery stable, bank, hotel, general store, and the Dry Skull Saloon.

It seems to have been designed as a very elaborate backdrop for visitor photos. A sign next to pumps identifies it as the town of Tumbleweed, with a dwindling population of 7.
