Dighton Rock

Massachusetts designated Dighton Rock as the official explorer rock in 1983. Dighton Rock is an 11-foot-high "glacial erratic" boulder that once rested on the shore of the Taunton River. Dighton Rock is covered with petroglyphs (carved designs of ancient and uncertain origin). The rock is now installed in a small museum.
