Archeology Fair

Every October, on a very special Saturday, the Whitehead Memorial Museum becomes host to a magical event. History comes to life! Step back in time to enjoy the old lifeways. Make adobe bricks. Roll corn into meal on a grinding stone. Create cordage and painted pebbles similar to what the Ancient People of the Lower Pecos Region made thousands of years ago. See Buffalo Soldiers and the Texas Camel Corps. These and many more activities await!

The 13th Annual Archeology Fair will be held from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, October 4, 2014.

Admission for the event is $2 per adult and $1 per child.

The Whitehead Memorial Museum is located at 1308 South Main Street, Del Rio, TX.
