Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument [TX]
The Alibates Flint Quarries are located in Fritch, Texas, in the upper panhandle, and are the site of extensive mining operations by the local Indian tribes. The flint mined at Alibates is multicolored and uniquely suited for the formation of primitive tools. Today, a visitor center stands by the quarries, which are open to visitors year round.
The quarries offer exhibits and presentations in the visitor center, daily tours, field trip programs, and a traveling trunks service. The website offers historical information regarding Alibates, visitor information, and photo galleries of the park.
