Rock of Ages in Battle Creek

Battle Creek is the home of a one-of-a-kind memorial called Rock of Ages. It was created by local resident James Brown from bits and pieces of memorabilia he'd collected over the years like a Remember the Maine plaque and a 250,000 year old rock formation from a cave in Virginia. He would pick up stones from the places he visited like Plymouth Rock, Lincoln's birthplace and  Mt Vernon which are all built into the unique pillar. This structure, completed in the 1930's has been featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not. It stands in Monument Park with CW Post and Sojourner Truth.
