Stinnett: A.M. Coffee Track and Prehistoric Bison Exhibit - Stinnett City Hall


Human footprints in the Permian sand? On display are, what appears to be, human footprints in Permian era stone which is thought to be around 225 million years old. The footprints were found by a local oil man (A.M. Coffee) in 1934. The find stirred up lengthy controversy between geologists, archaeologists, paleontologists and students of Indian stone carvings. Although several footprints were discovered this is the only one of two known to remain due to theft and vandalism. A replica of the oldest Prehistoric Bison found in the area is on display.
