Cabin Built From Fossilized Dinosaur Bones

Located near Medicine Bow, Wyoming, along US Route 30 lies one of USA’s oddest roadside attraction. It’s a cabin constructed out of fossilized dinosaur bones. It contains 5,796 pieces of bones recovered from the nearby Como Bluff, one of the major sites for the early discovery of dinosaur.
The cabin was built as part of a gasoline filling station by Thomas Boylan in the early 1930s. Thomas Boylan had been collecting bones for seventeen years, intending to create sculptures of dinosaurs in front of his house and gas station along the Lincoln Highway. But when Boylan realized that the bones came from various species and there appeared to be no complete specimen in the entire pile, he dropped the idea and instead built the 29 feet by 19 feet cabin with the help of his son.
