Bell County Museum

Bell county museum

For decades, the award-winning Bell County Museum has been a vital resource for the collection, interpretation and preservation of the historical heritage of the Bell County region. The collection covers pre-history, the land grant period, the formation of the county in 1850, and the establishment of Fort Hood. The museum was originally housed in the beautifully restored Carnegie Library Building, constructed in 1904. A major expansion in 2006 provided and additional 10,000 square feet of space, which allowed the museum to expand its mission to include providing quality traveling exhibitions such as "The Inspired Line: Selected Prints from Albrecht Durer and Rembrandt van Rijn," hosted in the summer of 2009. The Bell County Museum is now home to a new interactive exhibit focusing on one of the most prolific and important archaeological sites in North America, located in Bell County, Texas, called the Gault Site. The award-winning museum provides interactive exhibits, Fun Shops and Summer Camps for children, as well as a very special children's mascot, Charley Chisholm! Call the museum to discover how your child can explore archaeology at the museum! Hours of operation: Tuesday-Saturday, Noon - 5pm Admission: Free 201 North Main Street 254-933-5243 www.bellcountymuseum.org


The Gault Site Exhibit

the Gault site: A Wealth of new Archeology information The Gault site has been home to human beings for over 13,000 years. Strategically located streamside in the Balcones Ecotone (the boundary zone of the Edwards Plateau and the Black Prairie and Coastal Plain Ecozone), the Gault Site provided abundant food resources for early peoples. This rich ecotone enabled early peoples to forage the uplands as well as the stream valley where different kinds of plants and animals were found. Just as important as the wealth of food sources, however, is the seemingly endless supply of chert at the site, which was readily crafted into tools and weapons. To date, the Gault Site excavations have uncovered almost 2 million artifacts; 600,000 to 700,000 of these are from the Clovis period (13,300 to 12,900 years ago). The analysis of this material provides archaeologists with a unique look into the lifestyles of the earliest people in Texas and, by extension, the earliest peoples in the Americas. Bell County Museum is home to a permanent interactive educational exhibit featuring discoveries of the Gault Site. Guided walking tours to this site are available through the Bell County Museum.
