What's Here:

The Agent's house at Laws was occupied until 1960. For 77 years it was home to over two-dozen agents and their families who brought with them their own furnishing.  It is now furnished with period pieces donated by families in the area who wanted to share their own heirlooms.


This is the authentic Agent's House which was built in 1883 on this very site, at the inception of the Bishop Station along the Carson and Colorado Railroad line.  The Agent’s House has undergone several projects over the years: in 1916 the kitchen was added, and 1923 brought the addition of an indoor bathroom and scullery, followed by the second bedroom. The original colors were oxide red with white trim, Southern Pacific painted the house and depot the yellow with brown trim you see today. In 2010 a foundation was installed to preserve the building, and a 2022 project provided restoration of the exterior surfaces as well as a new roof.
