Having no desire whatsoever to own my own home, I don’t follow real estate markets, but things must be bad if this geologic treasure hasn’t been sold. This one of a kind cabin in Como Bluff, Wyoming was built in the 1930’s using over 6,000 fragments of dinosaur bones, excavated from the ridge behind the house.
In the late 1800’s Como Bluff was world famous for the sheer number of dinosaur bones found along the ridge. The fossils were transported to New York, Chicago, Washington DC and Philadelphia, where they formed the backbones of the dinosaur collections at the American Museum of Natural History, the Peabody Museum, the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences.
The Dinosaur Bone Cabin was built in 1933 by a creative local landowner who gathered up discarded bone fragments from around the dig site. The cabin operated as a paleontology and historical museum on and off for decades. These days, it’s shut tight and the property is falling into disrepair. A Wyoming tourism website says: We’re Sorry! The Fossil Cabin Museum is currently CLOSED, pending acquisition of a suitable manager.
Think you might be the right person to run this place? It’s for sale! Judging by the condition of the for sale sign, it’s been sitting on the market for quite awhile. You might get a great deal…
