If you've ever spent a few minutes in the Silver Bar Cocktail Lounge, you may have noticed something peculiar. While most of the wood carvings around the Inn are impeccable, a stretch of wooden beams and cornices near the bar remain unfinished - bearing only the black marker outlines of what would have one day been carvings.

Madonna Inn is synonymous with many things. "Pink," "cherubs," "waterfall bathroom," and "cake" come to mind pretty instantaneously, but many are not so quick to associate MI with dinosaur fossils... until now, that is!
Outrageous as it may sound, Madonna Inn is currently home to two fossils which are nestled inside boulders used in some of the rock work between the Steak House and the Silver Bar. Legend holds that there were once three fossils until one extraordinary specimen was removed and given to a museum! Next time you're in for dinner or a drink make sure to check out this little piece of history.
