In 1974 the site was being cultivated for a housing project till the contractors dug up mysterious bones along with large tusks and teeth. As a result an archeological team was brought in to verify the authenticity of the bones, and today this site is now preserved for its historical significance, now tourists can go to see the Mammoth Site of Hot Spring in South Dakota and it is a great place to let kids experience a part of the earth's humble beginnings.
