The Birth of the Laws Museum

Due to the discovery of new and more precise information on the fate of the Slim Princess, a portion of the story shared early in the account, we have taken down the current version until a new one is ready.   Thank you for your patience.





The Red Apple Route

In the year 1908 Owens Valley residents had already been riding the Carson and Colorado Railroad for nearly 25 years.  But now grumbling began to surface from a frustrated population; the train was on the wrong side of the Valley. The railroad was built specifically to serve mining operations on the eastside, but the population centers were to the west. Residents wanted a railroad connecting their towns, and they were ready to make it happen.
