Your wondering is Dinersaur Park spelled correct, well that is what Peggy Sue calls it. Located in back of buidling where some really fun things to look at. The kids will probably get a kick out of it, because I do. You can see the Dinersaur's from the I-15 freewy.
Take in an old fashion play. Calico Ghost Town Theater is a great place to stop and get out of the blazing sun. This theater offers one of those old time plays, complete with a live piano player, accentuating the action with appropriate music. The play usually has a beautiful damsel in distress, at the hands of the evil villain and of course she is saved by the handsome hero!
The Early Man Site is an active archeological dig, one that has been connected with Dr. Leaky since 1967. Tours are given daily and the docents are more than happy to answer all your questions during the tour. We stayed after to ask a few more questions and the docent really took her time showing us many things not covered earlier.
The Calico Early Man Site is one of the most important archaeological sites in North America. It provides a unique "in place" museum of Pleistocene archaeology and geology. This unique research and recreation facility consists of two master pits, where most of the findings have been made, one training trench and four test pits. The discoveries have pushed knowledge of man's existence on this continent back by at least 50,000 years.
On the inscription you will read:
The Calico Mining District, which had a peak population of 3,000, produced between $13 and $20 million in silver and $9 million in borate minerals between 1881 and 1907. On April 6, 1881, several claims were located that formed the Silver King, largest mine in the district. Profitable mining of silver in the area ceased in 1896.
It is California's registered Historical Landmark No. 782 and has been placed by the state department of parks and recreation in cooperation with San Bernardino County regional parks department May 12, 1973
