Eagle Head Rock
On Route 66 in Hebron is Eagle Rock, a patriotic landmark that has been painted since 1989. Signed by a local artist named "Sawyer." The rock is between Stonehouse and Buck Roads, near house #516.[Donna, 08/25/2014]
Just two of many along Connecticut roads. These rocks have been painted by locals because they already resemble the figures they paint onto them. It's better than graffiti. In Marlborough there is an eagle's head and a snake. The eagle head was circled by American flags for Independence Day.[RorysRoadTrips, 07/11/2013]

A few miles out of Marlborough CT there is a very large outcropping of rock painted like a Bald Eagle. It's pretty impressive, especially when you stumble on it while being hopelessly lost.[Douglas Lain, 03/23/2001]
