This might be interesting but I was put off by the busy road and lack of parking. Wanted to read and study but just snapped a pic and ran because I was blocking the road. There is no street parking and it looks like the only parking spot is someone's driveway. Needs a sign to allow visitor parking.[TL, 07/27/2016]
- 1049 Sulphur Springs Rd, Waynesville, NC
- On the east side of Sulphur Springs Rd roughly midway between Sloan Drive and 5th St. The parking area is tiny, and the monument is set back from the road. You might miss it the first time you drive past.
This is a very quick stop and mildly amusing. Most of the plates look too new for my taste but this will improve with age. They were open for business and busy when I came by, so I didn't pester them with questions; maybe next time.[TL, 07/27/2016]

We found the caged rock and discovered that it is caged due to its violent temper. Locals told us that it ate three teenagers in 2015. Beware the bloodthirsty, purse-snatching creature/pet rock.[Drumbabe, 07/27/2016]
