More than 25 years ago, a big discovery in Waco put some wheels in motion.

Just five miles from Baylor University's campus, more than 20 mammoth bones were found by snake hunters.

The site is believed to be the largest concentration of prehistoric mammoths to die in the same natural event.

Visitors to the Mayborn Museum Complex at Baylor University will be able to see the bones exactly how they were discovered.

"The building and the excitement inside it, which is the main focus, should be fun for people to get a chance to see," Sharon Fuller with Waco Parks and Recreation said.

City leaders have worked to have the excavation site recognized as a national monument.
