Today’s “Hub City Trivia” question was: Which Lubbock attraction has been “hosting visitors” for 12,000 years?
Answer: Lubbock Lake National Historic Landmark
The Lubbock Lake National Historic Landmark is a unique archaeological site. It is the only one in North America that has a complete record of nearly 12,000 years of human history located in one place, and uncovered by scientists. It is also a natural history preserve containing over three miles of hiking trails through 300 acres of remnant prairie land on the Southern High Plains. Smithsonian Magazine recently named this Lubbock landmark one of the top five destinations to see evidence of first Americans. The landmark provides a perfect family outing and regularly hosts night hikes on a 3-mile scenic trail through the Yellow House Canyon. The site even features special events like Archaeology in Action, where visitors can interact and observe excavators and lab crews as they work, an experience not usually open to the public.
