Glen Rose Glen Rose
Glen Rose has a rich history dating to 1860, when Charles Barnard built a mill on the banks of the Paluxy River. However, Glen Rose is best known as the Dinosaur Capital of Texas. In 1908 the first known dinosaur tracks were found and over the years more tracks were discovered in the Paluxy River. In 1940 Glen Rose started gaining national fame when tracks were cut from the bed of the Paluxy River and sent to New York's Museum of Natural History. In 1969 Dinosaur Valley State Park became the focal point for visitors and dinosaur tracks can be viewed by the public. Sinclair-Richfield donated a 70 foot Apatosaurus and a 45 foot Tyrannosaurus rex, and although they are replicas, they provide a great photo opportunity. Glen Rose has been a tourist destination since the 1870s when visitors flocked to the area to drink the mineral waters, which were said to have healing powers. In the 1920s and 30s, Glen Rose attracted doctors, faith healers and in general . . . quacks, who touted their own abilities as well as the healing powers of the waters. Glen Rose has gained international fame in the animal world as home to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of endangered species and the preservation of their natural habitats.
