Been here several times. History ranges from prehistoric to more recent history of Plains Indians. It is an active archaeological dig so you can see them working if you go at the right time.

Lubbock was a prehistoric watering hole of now-extinct giant Bison Antiqus and Mastadons, and the amazing Short-Faced Bear . The archaeology here is fascinating.

Knowing the story of archeological finds here, it was interesting to finally get to stop at the actual location. It's just very funny to see a big statue of an elephant in Lubbock. Nice display.
