Meyers Springs

Site: TE9

Meyers Springs is an isolated water hole in the arid lands west of the Pecos River. Brilliant red paintings overlook a permanent pool of water sheltered only by a shallow overhang. Although faded remnants of much older pictographs can still be detected, the majority are attributable to Plains Indians who were latecomers to the region. The spring also served as an outpost for Buffalo Soldiers stationed at Fort Clark under the command of John Bullis, who later acquired this property. Many of the pictographs sustained heavy damage from gunfire, graffiti and other acts of vandalism.
