Inscription Rock on Kelleys Island postcard   Save
Kelleys Island Collection
Description: Postcard of Inscription Rock, on the shoreline of Kelleys Island in Erie County, Ohio, ca. 1915-1935. This large limestone rock is located near at least two American Indian villages on Kelleys Island. The surface is covered in aboriginal art called petroglyphs. No one knows what these drawings mean, but it is thought that they might be messages left by America Indians about where they have been, where they are going next and how the fishing or hunting was. The caption on the bottom of the postcard reads "FAMOUS INDIAN INSCRIPTION ROCK. KELLEY'S ISLAND. OHIO." View on Ohio Memory.
