Squaw Rock Sign

There’s a walking/biking path in the park just down the street from my house.  The main attraction on this particular path is “Squaw Rock”.  Back in the mid-1800’s, Henry Church carved a papoose, a woman, arrows and a giant serpent into this giant boulder along the banks of the Chagrin River, in what is now South Chagrin Reservation.  Henry’s sculpture was so well received that they named a street after him.  As you walk along the path, you’re inundated with a tremendous amount of other carvings…none of which are very artistic.  My guess is, if Henry were alive today, and attempted to carve his “Squaw Rock”, he would be arrested and fined, the same as our other local “sculptors”.

As You can see, I live in a real hotbed of “artistic” activity…yeah, right!

    • Michele, thanks for checking my blog. I don’t accept submissions at this time. This is my personal blog, in that I relate concerns, stories, or experiences that have happened to me personally. I have been kicking around the idea of having guest bloggers from time to time, but not at this time. Thanks for asking.
