You Can Touch Dinosaur TracksSince 1939

Where is the best place in the world to find dinosaur footprints?

In the Connecticut River Valley

It was in this valley that the first dinosaur tracks in North America were found.

One of the most productive sites for dinosaur tracks is the Nash Dinosaur Track Site. It was discovered in 1933 and bought in 1939 by Carlton S. Nash. Since that time it has produced thousands of dinosaur tracks that have been sold to museums and private individuals all over the world. The Nash Dinosaur Track Site and Rock Shop is located about one mile from where the first dinosaur footprints in the Connecticut River Valley were found in 1802 by a farmer's son named Pliny Moody. Since Carlton S. Nash's death in 1997, his son Kornell Nash has carried on the work.
