Rock Eagle

Rock Eagle is an old Indian mound made of rocks in the shape of an eagle. You have to climb a tower to look down on the eagle. A fence was built around the eagle many years ago because people were actually removing rocks from the mound. It's very impressive. Rock Eagle is also the home of a large 4-H center.
