Lubbock Lake Landmark

A unit of the Museum of Texas Tech University, the Lubbock Lake Landmark is an archaeological and natural history preserve at the northern edge of the city of Lubbock, Texas. The Landmark contains evidence of almost 12,000 years of occupation by ancient peoples on the Southern High Plains.

The Landmark welcomes visitors of all ages year round. In the summer months, watch as areas on the preserve are actively excavated. Volunteers from the local community and around the world assist a team of scientists in the meticulous process of unearthing and cataloging every find at the Landmark.

Guided and self-guided tours, a Learning Center, exhibitions, public programs, programs for school children and for educators are all part of the Landmark's ongoing mission to provide a research and educational facility and to reveal and preserve both Texas and the nation's cultural and natural heritages.

The Landmark is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a designated National Historic and State Archaeological Landmark.
