In a marl pit on the John E. Hopkins farm in October 1858, the world's first nearly complete dinosaur skeleton was unearthed by William Parker Foulke. The find was adjacent to this point. This was also the first dinosaur skeleton to ever be mounted. The bones represented a 25 foot, 7-8 ton herbivorous hadrosaurus (reptile). Its height probably ranged from 6-10 feet at the hips. Some 55 of an estimated 80 bones were discovered. This creature lived 70-80 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period at the end of the dinosaur age.

This site was developed in 1984 as an Eagle Scout Project
by Christopher Brees, Troop 65.
Major project funded by the
Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, Pa.
