 The first visitors to [[Big Bone Lick]], of both the human and animal variety, were drawn there by the large salt deposits. ​ The salt had attracted early Native Americans, explorers and prehistoric animals. ​ The fossilized remains of these creatures were well preserved in the bogs surrounding the mineral springs, and have been a fascination to many since their discovery. The first visitors to [[Big Bone Lick]], of both the human and animal variety, were drawn there by the large salt deposits. ​ The salt had attracted early Native Americans, explorers and prehistoric animals. ​ The fossilized remains of these creatures were well preserved in the bogs surrounding the mineral springs, and have been a fascination to many since their discovery.
