The Kingsland Archaeological Center is the only archaeological site interpreted for the public along the Colorado River. The Center consists of exhibit areas to showcase artifacts, a field school excavation area of display, and a trail with interpretive displays, allowing visitors to "walk through time." Professional and vocational archeologists will continue sifting through the fragments of this Central Texas time capsule.
Breath-taking, awesome, intriguing, and beautiful ... words alone cannot adequately describe Enchanted Rock State Natural Area with its massive dome of pink granite! Indian lore swirls around Enchanted Rock, which led to its name in the 1800's. Today, visitors come to make the short but fascinating trek up to the rock's summit, where they are treated to panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country. Scenic trails along the rock's base are especially pretty in the spring, and high cliffs on the northwest side of the main dome attract rock climbers.
Llano Uplift Archaeological Society
The Llano Uplift Archeological Society was organized by people interested in the protection, conservation and study of historic and prehistoric materials and sites in the Llano/Burnet Uplift ("Central Mineral Region") area of the Texas Hill Country. Its primary goals include education of the membership, students and the public; and to support other groups, researchers and educators with similar interests. Stewardship of the Kingsland Archaeological Center is a major responsibility of the LUAS.
