Lamb Spring Archaeological Preserve

Lamb Spring is a unique and valuable resource for public education and research because the site contains what may be some of the best-preserved evidence of the earliest humans to live in the North American Continent, as well as the remains of many extinct Ice Age animals.

Free Public Tours


Arts, Culture & Humanities 


General population


Each year, May through October, Lamb Spring offers two free tours, open to the public to register via the website. The tours include a brief presentation on the history and findings of the Preserve, followed by a site visit, where guests enjoy walking around the dig site and viewing a small exhibit with replicas of artifacts that have been found on the site.


Evidence of Program's Success

Each subsequent year, we experience more and more traffic to the site. We had record attendance in 2017 and had to add more tour dates in 2018. We also offer private tours to small groups and have experienced growth in that area such that they are equal or greater to the number of public tours we give each year.
