Mammoth Site Receives $862,000 In Funding

May 29, 2014, 1:20 PM

HOT SPRINGS, SD -

The Mammoth Site in southwest South Dakota has been granted $862,100 in federal funding to build a new learning center that will include two theaters.

Officials with the site in Hot Springs plan to build a 5,800-square-foot addition that will feature a new entryway, gathering area, storage, and two 53-seat theaters.

Business manager Joe Muller says the funding will give South Dakota a world-class working paleontological site and museum. About 100,000 people visit the site each year.

An official with the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the funding during a site visit Thursday.

At least 60 mammoths have been found in the area. The site has been under exploration since 1974, when a construction crew dug up mammoth bones on the south side of Hot Springs.
