What’s the story behind the crater in Henderson, known as the Durango Canyon Event Center? No one really knows. Some say a giant meteor fell to earth thousands of years ago and left this natural crater. Others believe the crater could have been formed by the ancient Caddo Indians. Arrowheads and Indian artifacts have pushed their way to the surface over the years.
Today the crater is enjoyed by East Texans as well as other visitors.
