Killbuck Face Stone.

Killbuck Valley Museum

The town of Killbuck isn't much larger than its town square, which consists of a grocery store, auto mechanic, church, pizzeria, post office, and the Killbuck Valley Museum. The museum has the usual collection of local artifacts, a surprisingly large geology collection, and an even larger collection of taxidermy: at least 300 stuffed specimens. I didn't expect to see a stuffed Bobcat in Killbuck, let alone two.

One especially interesting item on display was labeled the Unusual and Mysterious Killbuck Face Stone. The sandstone is local to the area, and this example has carved into it... an alien? A man baby? Did I mention that the museum is free?
