Visitor Tips and News About Queen Esther's Bloody Rock
Very tricky to find. Across from a parking lot, and next to houses. While your there, you're only about a mile or so from the Battle Of Wyoming Monument.[Paul, 11/06/2011]
Odd that the site was located in a residential area![Sue, 06/27/2010]
This prized boulder, The Bloody Rock, is almost invisible within the steel cage built around it. It marks the site where Indian Queen Esther, angered by the death of her son after the July 3, 1778 Battle of Wyoming, is said to have smashed the skulls of 14 or more captured American soldiers with her maul. The metal cage discourages head smashing replays by overly enthusiastic visitors.
