History

AAA History

 

600 million years ago during the Paleozoic era the northwest half of Texas was on the floor of the ancient ocean and the Gulf of Mexico was a mountain range.

The Permian Period ran from 299 million to 252 million years ago ended with a great cataclysm. In the sea and on land, most species then alive were wiped out forever. It was, by far, the most catastrophic extinction on record.

Plate tectonic activity shifted and caused the whole area that is now Texas to rise much higher and the Gulf of Mexico began to sink. The sea now came in from the southeast instead of the northwest, and the shoreline oscillated back and forth so that the area was sometimes covered by shallow seas, but at other times it was dry land.

During times when the seas receded, the limestone platform was exposed to the air and elements, so erosion took place. Extensive erosion occurred just prior to the transgression of the Georgetown Sea across the platform during the middle Cretaceous period 65 million years ago.

The Cretaceous limestone deposits found in the Edward Plateau offers some of the world’s most exquisite limestones.
