Great State Park! - Big Bone Lick State Historic Site

Review of Big Bone Lick State Park

Shawnee legend tells of a herd of huge bison rampaging through the Ohio Valley, laying waste to all in their path. To protect the tribe, a deity slew these great beasts with lightning bolts, finally chasing the last giant buffalo into exile across the Wabash River, never to trouble the Shawnee again. The source of this legend was a peculiar salt lick in present-day northern Kentucky, where giant fossilized skeletons had for centuries lain undisturbed by the Shawnee and other natives of the region. In , the first Europeans encountered this fossil site, which eventually came to be known as Big Bone Lick. The giant bones immediately cast many scientific and philosophical assumptions of the day into doubt, and they eventually gave rise to the study of fossils for biological and historical purposes.

This was a fun park to stop and hike around at. Seeing the bison was cool. We were here several Very nice, clean park.
Post a Comment. My kids got excited as soon as they saw the big entrance sign with picture of bison and mammoths. We went straight back to the outdoor diorama and the museum. The museum has a large air conditioned!!! There are several other fossils, historical references, restrooms, and a gift shop.
