Big Bone Lick State Park
Union, Kentucky

Big Bone Lick State Park contains one of the largest deposits of prehistoric animal bones in North America. Phase One of the park's new museum and welcome center consists of a freestanding structure of 4,300 square feet. Phase Two will be a 16,600-square-foot addition to Phase One. The exterior finish of horizontal wood siding covers the entire building. A small, arced canopy with copper fascia provides cover at the main entry. The orientation of the building takes advantage of views from the road and into the park as the grade falls away into the forest. A large picture window frames the view of an existing prehistoric bone yard exhibit. Parking is benched into the hill on the upper side of the building, providing visitors with a clear view of the museum and its complementary relationship with the surrounding topography.
