Archaeology history museum set to reopen near Clovis


CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – A museum highlighting a piece of archaeology history near Clovis is about to reopen.

Stone and bone weapons, tools and other evidence of early settlers were found in what’s known as the Blackwater Draw.

A museum highlighting the site, which has been open since 1960, closed in September 2016. It was located on Highway 70.

This weekend, it will be reopening in Lea Hall on the Eastern New Mexico University campus.

It highlights the scientific research that has occurred at the Clovis site over the past 85 years.

The actual Blackwater site is a National Historic Landmark located off Oasis State Park Road and is still open.
