Stewart's Petrified Wood

A fantastic stop! So much more than just the petrified wood! Dinosaurs built by Stewart himself, and the shop has soooo many cool things. Make sure to say hi to miss Gazell (Stewart's wife). She is such a nice lady, we could've talked to her forever.

Very run down. However, there are interesting gems inside.

Mr. Stewart has now retired, being 81 years old. The ostrich has been sold. But the place is still a gem. Nooks and crannies and buckets and old wooden shelves full of artifacts, petrified wood, geodes, fossils, meteorites, sandstone, and other interesting stuff. Outside you can pick through piles of unpolished petrified wood for $2 a pound. The dinosaurs have seen better days, but still add to the uniqueness of the place. The employee has been there 23 years and is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our visit.

Stewart's Petrified Wood

Funky little shop with dinosaurs, ostriches, pet wood and a host of related oddities. This is not for the "Ms TuTu;" it is classic "Sanford" -- junky and unkempt. It is great! Took lots of pics with dinos and ostriches. Pleasant people to shoot the breeze with.
