“the Oldest Cabin in the World”

A house made of dinosaur bones referred to as “the Oldest Cabin in the World.” It was featured in Ripley's "Believe It or Not" as the oldest house on Earth. The bones came from Como Bluff, the famous dinosaur area  where Cope and Marsh had their late 1800's dinosaur "Bone War". The cabin is on  old US 30, the "Lincoln Highway" and is a short trip of a dozen miles or so off I-80  at the Medicine Bow or Mcfadden exits. It is worth the visit to see the bone. The  fossilized foot pads of the large dinosaurs is interesting. Building has a $3 admission if you like and a minor display of a few odd ammonites, and other fossils of the Shirley Basin/local Eocene.

Well, this was an interesting off course trip. The museum does not exist on the course the app provided. Checked the website, it's in a different state and it's closed looking for a new manager. Sounds like quirky fun though. Still laughing. Would be funnier if we weren't so far off course
