The story of the Waco mammoths has captured the imagination of central Texans for almost 30 years. Investigation of the site began in 1978 when Paul Barron and Eddie Bufkin first discovered a bone protruding from an eroding creek bank and reported it to the Baylor University's Strecker Museum staff.

By 1990, fifteen mammoths had been identified, their remains preserved and removed. During the clean-up of the dig site, another bone was found which has led to the discovery of ten additional mammoths, a camel, and a young saber-toothed cat's tooth. Boreholes in the site area indicate that additional mammoths have yet to be unearthed.

The Waco Mammoth Site is the largest known concentration of prehistoric mammoth elephants dying from the same event.
