From the Friends of Dinosaur Ridge Website:
Discovered in 1877 by Arthur Lakes and company, the Dinosaur Ridge Bone Site was originally referred to as Morrison Quarry Number Five. Of the 14 quarries in the area, only four actually produced bones – 1, 5, 8, and 10.
Quarry Number 5 is the Dinosaur Ridge Bone Quarry, and was the site where the world’s first Stegosaurus was discovered. Several vertebrae, parts of limbs and pieces of the famous plates were uncovered and can now be seen on display at the Morrison Natural History Museum (see their link on the Contact Us section).
The bones exposed today at our interpretive site are most likely from Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus and washed into this small braided stream channel deposit likely during a rainy season flooding event. Our Bone Quarry is one of only a few locations where you can see and touch dinosaur bones in the rock where they fossilized long ago.
