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.

Painted Rocks

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.

Eagle Rock's Former Identity

This was known as Frog Rock and painted like a frog in late 60s. When passing by it was obligatory to throw bottles from passenger side, over the car, to smash on Frog Rock.

Eagle Rock became an eagle in 1989, and has received the town's blessing in that form. The eagle is given touch-ups every few years by local volunteers.

Eagle Rock

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]

"Steve" notes: "Many years ago was painted to resemble a turtle. Became 'Eagle Rock' more than 10 years ago."
