Gunslinger 66: Tumbleweed Gas Station Town in Laramie, Wyoming

Just off of I-80 in Laramie, Wyoming is a peculiar site. Is it a ghost town? An old west town? Or is it…a gas station? It’s actually the Gunslinger 66 (otherwise known as Tumbleweed Gas Station Town).

A building to the side of the actual gas station, dubbed Tumbleweed Town, is dressed in a facade of an old west town’s main street. With dilapidated wooden siding decorated with signs declaring “General Store,” “Hotel,” “Dry Skull Saloon,” “Territorial Bank,” “Livery,” and “Stable.”

Another building, closer to the pumps, was a mini-mart called Gunslinger 66. Among traditional gas station shop wares, like coffee and candy bars, there were souvenirs and displays of animal heads and Old West artifacts.

Gunslinger 66 and Tumbleweed Gas Station Town have been around since at least the 1970s. Unfortunately, when I stopped by in 2019 Tumbleweed wasn’t the only ghost town: the gas station pumps and convenience store were closed. According to some reviews on Yelp, people had been complaining of slow pumps and dirty bathrooms.
