Indian Head Rock.

Indian Head Rock

Between Pottsville and Schuylkill Haven, on Route 61 between the Mount Carbon exit and Cressona Mall, there is a large painted red and white object, which has been a landmark since well before Pottsville was planned. It's easily visible up on the steep hillside. It's on private land and it is not recommended that anyone attempt to actually go up there.
