Big Bone Lick Park dedicates new visitor center
Kentucky's Department of Parks touts Big Bone Lick State Park as the birthplace of American paleontology, but the park's real birth pangs have come as the state tries to focus national or at least regional attention on it.
State and local officials will celebrate one step toward that goal today when they dedicate the park's new 3,800-square-foot visitor center.
State Commerce Secretary Jim Host, state Rep. Jim Marcotte, R-Union, and Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore will be among those on hand to mark the $745,000 center's opening.
Short Story Long: They'd better not get too attached to their visitor center. The esteemed Congressman from Indiana's Interstate 69 will no doubt get involved and rename it to "Greater Osseus Osculation State Park."
Look THAT up in your Funk & Wagnalls! ;)
