Two-Headed Calf

The whole place was very cool. Absolutely worth the admission price! The calf is in the education center building.

Two-headed calf.

The two-headed calf was definitely the highlight of the stop. If you ask the nice lady at the nicely, she will give you a wooden nickel.

Two-Headed Calf at Overland Trail Museum

Much more to offer than two-headed calf. We planned on seeing the calf (stuffed) and leaving, but stayed 90 minutes. They have a variety of displays from western rifles to old school house, church, general store and gas station (right out of Mabery).

Two-Headed Calf at Overland Trail Museum

This museum features a tiny old town outdoors. There is a blacksmith shop, schoolhouse, general store, church, barbershop, gas station, and an old home was just added. They are all furnished. Indoors, there are several neat history items, and a two headed calf.
