Inscription Rock drawing   Save
Kelleys Island Collection
Description: Drawing of Inscription Rock, located on the south shore of Kelleys Island in Erie County, Ohio. The rock is marked with prehistoric American Indian pictographs. The flat-topped limestone slab displays carvings of animals and human figures. Discovered partly buried in the shoreline in 1833, the 32 foot by 21 foot rock is now entirely exposed. Much eroded by the elements, it is now protected by a roof and viewing platform. Archaeologists believe the inscriptions date from sometime between AD 1200 and the present. View on Ohio Memory.
