Prehistoric Rock Art

“Are you interested in prehistoric rock art (sometimes called Indian Writings)? The Edgemont Area is home to extensive examples of this amazing prehistoric record, and the museum has great examples on display. Explore the interactive kiosk to learn about the Craven Canyon Site, and many other links to discussions of what the art is and what it may mean.

In the 1930’s, a local named Frank Buker took it upon himself to make full-size tracings of many of the
examples of rock art in the area. These tracings were made on oilcloth, with the entire collection housed in the museum on loan from the Buker family. For ease of viewing, these very large tracings have been photographed and the photos are available for viewing. Buker’s correspondence with the Denver Museum of Natural History is also available on loan from the family and available for viewing.”
