Located between Mt. Hope church and English Bench cemetery, I believe in French Creek township.  The rock sits right along the road past a ditch.  Does anyone know anything else about this rock?  Would be interesting to hear some stories about its history, etc. If you know more about this rock please contact the Allamakee co. coordinator.
