Indiana Is Home To Tons Of Ancient Fossils And You Can Look For Them Yourself

Did you know that Indiana is a truly fascinating state with a tremendous amount of fossils scattered all over? It’s true! Though places in the Hoosier State where you can take home the fossils you come across are uncommon, there are a few, and trust us – you’ve got to go rockhounding and/or fossil-hunting at least once! It’s educational and quite rewarding when you find good specimens. The fossils in Indiana are excellent storytellers; they tell us about eons long past, in a world we never knew.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
