The Rocks

The Rocks
The peculiar name – Picture Rocks – was given to the place by the early settlers, who found rude Indian pictures painted on the rocks. They have long since disappeared. These hieroglyphics attracted much attention at first and were long regarded as an object of curiosity by the settlers. What they indicated no one could tell. Tradition informs us that the flat on which the town is built was once a favorite camping place for bands of Monsie Indians, and as many arrow points and other relics of the departed race were found there, such was probably the fact. – History of Lycoming County
