For as long as he can remember, Steve Sommer has loved collecting rocks and fossils.
â€śI use to haul them in, and my mom hauled them out,â€ť he laughs.
Along with his life-long interest in fossils, Sommer has long fostered the desire to open a museum. That dream has finally come true.
The Bone Yard Creation Museum will host its grand opening this weekend, though the museum actually opened to the public May 15. Getting to this point has been a long process, involving lots of hard work and sweat and lots of help, Sommer says.
