Few people would build a house in a graveyard – and no one would build it out of the bones of the bodies buried there. Yet, both statements are true of little sheepherder’s cabin east of Medicine Bow, Wyoming.

“Fossil Bone Cabin,” estimated to have been built in the 1800s, was resourcefully constructed the way many homes were back then: with the materials at hand. In this case, that happened to be an abundance of fossilized dinosaur bones. The cabin’s original builder didn’t know he was using bones to build his home, nor could he imagine that it would become the center of interest in the archaeological world.
