Gray Fossil Site

It doesn't open until August, but already it's a sight to see. After fossils were discovered in 2000 during the widening of the nearby highway, plans were made for a natural history museum outside of Gray, TN. Scientists estimate the fossils are 4.5 to 7 million years old. If the museum exhibits are even half as interesting as the building itself, they'll have quite an amazing attraction for Washington County and East Tennessee. For more information, click here and here and here.

Directions: From I-26, take exit 13 (Gray) and head west (turn left, away from town) on Route 75 (Bobby Hicks Highway) for 1.8 miles. The museum is on your left.
