“Holy Moley-A rock in the house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

Ever see a one and a half story rock in a smallish house? It's there in Fountain City, just like it was when it rolled down a bluff and almost through the house. The woman who lived in the house at the time was in the next room, but escaped unharmed, although she could not exit out the front door as the rock twisted the house frame so badly, the front door was jammed. It's an incredible site and all for a $1.00 admission. (At least that was what the cost was several years ago when I visited.) Did I mention the admission price was "on the honor system"? It's worth the stop.

Thank Rick A

“Unusual Roadside Attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2006

For a buck (honor system), you can walk all around a house where, in 1995, an enormous boulder fell off the bluffside, rolled down the hill, and smashed into a house. The owner was home but not injured. The owners have pretty much left the place as it was, complete with the giant boulder sitting in the back room. You can look around the rest of the first floor of the building, where they have some photos and newspaper accounts posted.

The garage of this property is built on the site of where a previous house was demolished by a falling boulder in 1901. A sleeping woman was killed in that incident.
