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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
