Long Description:
World's Largest Petrified Wood Park and Museum in Lemmon, SDThis elaborate and extensive Petrified Wood Park and Museum is located in the heart of Lemmon, SD right on Main Street. There are many displays dotting and entire city block great for a viewing stroll, with a small museum with lots of facts about the intriquing petrified wood found abundantly in this region. One local theory of the origins of all these specimens is that these woods were petrified by the most recent large explosion of the Yellowstone Mega-volcano. Petrified Log Above is a sample of a petrified log on display in the Park.
