Ghost Town and Freak Lamb

This is actually an old train museum and settlement. Well worth the drive to see, and the woman who works there is so knowledgeable.

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.
