Rhino Barn at Ashfall Promises Unique Fossil Experience

Visitors to the Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park near Royal can share the same joy and adventure as the paleontologists who discover fossils each day in the newly opened Hubbard Rhino Barn.

The new building covers 17,500 square-feet — eight times larger than the one it replaces — and allows for the discovery and protection of many more fossils and enhances the experiences for visitors to the unique park. Visitors experience a firsthand look at the extinct animals preserved exactly as they died, and all new fossil excavations are carried out in their full view.
