Most People Don’t Know About These Strange Ruins Hiding In Texas

Many of us have heard about the dinosaur tracks in Glen Rose and the fossils in Mineral Wells, but did you know that one of the most important archaeological sites in the entire country is located right here in the Lone Star State? It’s about 40 miles north of Austin, and discoveries that have been made there are evidence of continuous human occupation beginning at least 16,000 years ago. See for yourself:

Although the Gault Site is private property, tours can be arranged through the Williamson County and Bell County Museums. More information on that here. You can also take a virtual tour if you don’t have time to visit in person! If you have any questions, feel free to call (512) 245-8734.
