Come out to Laws Railroad Museum and Historical Site Friday November 25th and Saturday November 26th for train rides and fun for the whole family. The Death Valley Brill car #5 will be running for train rides from 11 am to 2:30 pm.
Three years ago, at the Thanksgiving weekend we had snow on the ground during the rides. Keep your fingers crossed! The exhibits will be open along with our fully stocked gift shop. The 1927 Brill Car, a self-propelled narrow-gauge railcar, is one of only five operable railcars of this model in the world. It was received in derelict condition in 1967 and restored by Laws Railroad Museum and Historical Site volunteers.
Drawing will be held January 15, 2023.

Did you know our church/library was the original Catholic Church in Bishop located on West Elm Street? It was built in 1921 and moved to the museum in 1972. The entire structure was moved in a single piece.
We are ready to take on a major restoration project. The 101 year-old building needs to have the exterior shingles replaced with fire resistant material. This is a structural necessity to stop water permeating and further damaging the interior walls. Preserving history gives us the opportunity to have a conversation with our past about our future. To learn about ourselves and educate future generations.
Your donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
We host many community events and activities. Without the devotion of our volunteers, many of these would be de-railed. Volunteers are a gift to the community. You can make a difference. We understand that life commitments don’t provide the freedom to volunteer on a regular basis. However, if your days are somewhat flexible and you are able to give us a little time, we would love to have you.
