How It All Started

Fossils always amazed Allan Lang as a young boy. As a young adult he went on a Museum Collecting field trip. The group found very little amounts of the fossil called Eurypterus remipes, the official state fossil of New York. Allan was determined to find another location of the geological formations for this fossil. Many others had tried before to find a new fossil collecting site. Lang felt the collecting site should be nearby. He leased farmlands and did several test digs, until he finally found the fossil layer.

Allan Lang purchased the land from a farmer in upstate New York. On weekends he would travel upstate to dig and research further. This was the beginning of a business called Langs Fossils. Allan's second love is meteorites. Allan is a master tool and die maker, and maintains a world class cutting and preparation facility at his workshop in Ilion, New York. His work was cutting and stabilizing meteorites.

He worked extensively with:

  • Educational Fields
  • Schools
  • Museums
  • Private Collectors

STATE FOSSIL OF NEW YORK EURYPTERUS REMIPES

Unfortunately, the Langheinrich Fossil Preserve a Not-for-Profit Organization has ceased activity due to lack of funding. We are committed to the preservation and study of Eurypterus remipes — the official state fossil of New York — and the geological formations in which it is found.

It is our hope that the magnificent examples of Eurypterus remipes — the best-preserved examples of their kind, and found exclusively at this location — will come to enjoy greater recognition as our state fossil, and that the quarry site will be preserved for future generations of enthusiasts and scientists to study and enjoy.

If you’re interested in collecting at Lang’s Quarry or want to purchase a specimen visit the Langs Fossils Quarry page or the Langs Fossils Sales page.
