Prehistoric Mammoth Tooth at Warren County Historical Society Open House
Please join us on November 5 from 11 to 2 as we welcome home the giant Mammoth tooth found in Queensbury before the Civil War.
This Megafauna prehistoric elephant roamed Warren County some 13,000 years ago when the county was more Tundra-like with sedges and lichens in a very cold environment left by the retreating ice sheet on its way back North. The tooth was found on the Asa Harris Farm in upper Queensbury in June, 1870, and left the area in the early 20th century making its way to the New York State Museum in Albany.
The museum has loaned the Mammoth tooth for six months and will be unveiled by a descendant of the Harris family. New York State Paleontologist and Director of Research & Collections Division, Robert S. Feranec will be on hand to answer questions about the Warren County Mammoth.
The Open House is free and open to the public. Bring your children who will not want to miss seeing the Mammoth tooth.
