Fossils At Kentucky Rest Stop


A few weekends ago, we stopped at a Huck's Market (675 Western Kentucky Parkway, Beaver Dam, Kentucky) at on our way to a wedding in western Kentucky. While out stretching my legs, I examined a few boulders near the gas station/rest stop and found some fossils. The boulder located in the grass next to the parking lot near fuel pumps contained mostly crinoid stem and some brachiopods fossils. I am guessing they date to the Mississippian Period.
