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 date for the 2017 Annual Archeology Fair has yet to be posted, but the event will be held on a Saturday in October.

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.

For more information, call Education Specialist Lisa Nielsen at (830) 775-7491 extension 3223.
