Nationally Recognized Archaeological Site in North Lubbock

One of the most important archaeological sites in North America is located right here in North Lubbock. 

The Lubbock Lake Landmark, near the Berl Huffman Complex on the North Loop and Highway 84, exhibits evidence of nearly 12,000 years of human life.

The site was first explored in 1939 by the Museum of Texas Tech. About a decade later, bison from more than 10,000 years ago were discovered. Excavations are conducted annually.

The Landmark currently serves as a field laboratory for geology, soils, and radiocarbon dating studies, as well as being an active archaeological and natural history preserve. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a designated National Historic and State Archeological Landmark.

Visitors of all ages are welcome year round, and there is no admission.
