Courthouse and Jail Rocks

“We encamped early and several of the company went to it and I was one….. We didn’t supposed it to be more than one or two miles from the road. We went on foot, but as we found it to be at least four miles our was not as easy as we supposed. But like all the rest, we must see the Elephant and some of the party did see his back before they go to camp as some of them was out ’till 9 o’clock” John Lewis, 1852

“Twenty miles up you will see a Court House rock resembling a Missouri court house so much as to deceive many on their first trip”. Louis Dougherty, 1850
