The Laws Railroad Museum exhibits include a variety of historic buildings saved from destruction and preserved at this site. The Museum buildings have been set up to represent a village surrounding the railroad depot. With the exception of the original depot and the agent's house, the original village of Laws was gone by 1959, the year before the railroad shut down. The Project consists of building two wooden structures to house a historic stamp mill and store and protect some of the museum’s collection of textile resources. The Project also involves restoring the Rudolph Gold Mine Stamp Mill to an operational condition and incorporating interpretive displays inside the structures.
