PIERRE, S.D.A T-Rex named Sue” Traveling Exhibit will be in Faith through September 1.  This is your last chance to witness the largest, most complete, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex where it was unearthed 18 years ago.

 

“This exhibit has been very appealing to the public because Sue was discovered only 13 miles from Faith,” said Debbie Brown, Faith city finance office.  “The exhibit has been visited by people from all over the world and has been a great benefit to the city of Faith and the State of South Dakota.”

 

“A T-Rex Named Sue” was discovered on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation on August 12, 1990 and was named after Sue Hendrickson, the fossil hunter who found the T-Rex. 

 

Make the quick trip out to Faith for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Sue back in her old stomping grounds.  For more information contact the Faith Chamber of Commerce at 605-967-2261, 605-967-2001 or visit www.faithsdchamber.com.
